OPUS NUMBERS

 

 

 

“Opus numbers” are a roughly chronological numbering system created by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. It includes unbuilt projects, as well as completed structures.

 

My website it based on a numbering system developed by William Allin Storrer.  I recognize that Prof. Storrer’s inclusion or exclusion of projects can be controversial.  He also includes only those projects actually built (which is fine for my purposes since I do not – and cannot – take photographs of unbuilt projects). 

 

A great advantage of Storrer’s system is that it is accessible to the general public at an affordable price.  His guidebooks are widely available at a good price, and all are based on his numbering system.  The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, however, has not made its Opus system available on a widespread basis.  When I first asked about the Opus numbers years ago, it was recommended that I purchase books costing hundreds of dollars – hardly a way to make an organized list available for the masses.

 

There are inconsistencies in both systems.  For example, Storrer included two Michigan properties in early versions of his guides (S.166, J.H. Amberg Residence, and S.348, Wetmore Auto Service garage).  These were later dropped from his books.  Meanwhile, the Opus numbers recognize Amberg (#1001) but not Wetmore.

 

The Opus numbering system was eventually included in the Frank Lloyd Wright Field Guide by Thomas Z. Heinz, published in 2005.  I also recommend this book.

 

My chart below only includes those numbers for buildings (or artifacts) I have photographed. “#####” denotes projects that were not assigned separate Opus numbers; some of these may be controversial recent finds, and many are also prefabricated designs.
