Among the architectural treasures of Buffalo are several outstanding examples of the work of the architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Gardener's Cottage demonstrates Wright's design principles in a modest home while the Darwin D. Martin House is a prime example of his renowned prairie style architecture. The Darwin Martin House is currently undergoing total restoration.
