n 1936, a new client approached Wright. He was Herbert Johnson, president
of the progressive Johnson Wax Company of Racine, Wisconsin, and he was
looking for someone to build him a new administration building.
It was Wrights first chance at a large scale commission in years and he
was jubilant. What a release of pent-up energy, Wright remembered, the
making of those plans! Ideas came tumbling up and out onto paper.
As in the Larkin Building, he wanted to create an exhilarating environment
for the workers. Wright and his apprentices worked around the clock for
ten days to finish the drawings.
