The Children of the Sun Visitor Center is a visitor center for the Children of the Sun, the collection of buildings that were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the campus of the Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. Wright is one of the top American architects of all time, making his works always worth noting.
The Children of the Sun is the name of the buildings designed by Wright for the school from 1941 to 1958. These structures include the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel, Seminars, Buckner Building, Watson/Fine Building, Water Dome, Danforth Chapel, Ordway Building, Polk County Science Building, and The Esplanades. All of these are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
The Children of the Sun Visitor center features mostly photographs and drawings that tell of Wright?s relations with the Florida Southern College. The center offers guided tours through the buildings per appointment.
