Urban Remains - Original Exterior Francis Apartments Ornamental Terra Cotta Panel

Original buff-colored vitreous ornamental terra cotta exterior string course panel salvaged from the (non-extant) Francis Apartments in 1971. The South Side Chicago Francis is one of two middle-income housing projects executed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Chicago in 1895.  The intricately detailed and strongly geometric design features overlapping circles containing highly stylized and naturalistic floral ornament heavily influenced by his mentor Louis Sullivan.
