Overview

There a several structures located in the city of Buffalo designed by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright. While all of these were built during Wright's lifetime, there is actually one that was built several decades after the architect's death in 1959. The Blue Sky Mausoleum in Forest Lawn Cemetery, which was completed in 2004, was originally designed for the Darwin Martin family by Wright. However, after Martin lost his fortune in the 1929 stock market crash, the plans were shelved until the 1990s, when the president of Forest Lawn learned about the design, and an effort was made to raise funds to complete it. Burial vaults are available for purchase in this exclusive mausoleum. - Christine A. Smyczynski
