Getting design approval to build the SC Johnson complex was, well, complex. At one point, Wright had to prove the Wisconsin Industrial Commission was wrong so that the building process could go forward. And long before Google, the SC Johnson Headquarters building changed the modern workspace.
Frank Lloyd Wright was given enormous creative freedom in designing the S.C. Johnson Wax headquarters and administrative buildings. (The Lily Pad construction tested Racine's Building Commission!) The resulting buildings are imaginative and very distinct. As intricate as Frank Lloyd Wright's designs are, the Little Building Co. model carefully and accurately reproduced and scaled them to provide an enjoyable experience for model builders.
