It is very interesting fact that famous american architect Bruce Goff (1904 - 1982), whose work is linked traditionally with Oklahoma and Illinois only, designed one house for client from Caracas, Venezuela. South American hub of modernist architecture of 1950s and 1960s attracted not only Italian master Gio Ponti, but the legend of American organic architecture, too.

His first design for the Ignazio Perez house you can see on these two drawings, which will be exhibited in Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art in Norman. The exhibition called Bruce Goff: A Creative Mind runs there from 9th October 2010 to 2nd January 2011. You can see there some of architect`s designs that were never realized or were demolished. The first design of Caracas Ignazio Perez House is one of them. Strongly organic structure of this villa from 1953 is a surprising example of Goff`s work with tropical influences. The house was never realized.
