John J Dobkins House
5120 Plain Center Avenue, Canton, Ohio 44714
Tucked in the heart of America, in Canton, Ohio, is the John Dobkins House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954. Typical of most of Wright's residential work, and of his Usonian houses in his later period of design, are the long, horizontal lines, and low profile. The house is comprised of bright red brick and utilizes asymmetrical roof lines.
The John Dobkins House takes advantage of its site and is set back rather far from the street, especially compared to some of the neighboring houses, some of which are on at the front of the property line. Wright would commonly set the house back on the lot to push it further into nature and to deter curiosity seekers.
