flw jacob’s house

illustration — December 12, 2009


3D drawing of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Jacobs House, a Usonian design from 1937.


I was looking at some of the illustrations by SketchUp illustrator Jeff Thielemier, and thought I should try to draw a complicated Usonian home.


I draw very quickly. 3 hours last Friday, 1 hour Saturday, and a couple of more hours tonight.





I’ll probably add a few more details to the interior, then upload it to the 3D Warehouse.

  1. you don’t draw that quickly considering it looks like a single line drawing with some paint on it…

  9. I would love to have this file, It would really help me in understanding and analyze this building. If it isn’t to much trouble can you send it to me, I didn’t find this in the 3d warehouse.

  14. Hello,

    I am currently doing a project on Jacob’s house and I came across this page. The CAD model you have created would be perfect for working out the form and function of the house as well as some of the dimensions I may later need. I was wondering if it was at all possible for you to send me the file if you wouldn’t mind? It’s danny_atkinson95@live.co.uk. I’ve visited the building myself so any questions you might need I can answer.
