An architectural masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright in the hills of Hollywood has been restored and opened to the public.

Thousands of people visited Mayan-inspired Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, which was completed in 1921 for oil heiress Aline Barnsdall and is considered one of Wright’s masterpieces.

Some waited as long as 3 ½ hours in the middle of the night to get to the front of the line.

“Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House is a crown jewel of Los Angeles architecture,” said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

“Restoring this landmark to its original glory is a great example of how the city can preserve its unique history while providing Angelenos access to art in everyday places.”
