Lloyd Wright, whose real name was Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., was a prominent American architect known for his work in Los Angeles and Southern California. He was a landscape architect on various projects in Los Angeles from 1922 to 1924, designed the shells for the Hollywood Bowl from 1926 to 1928, and built the Swedenborg Memorial Chapel, also known as the Wayfarers Chapel, in Rancho Palos Verdes, California between 1946 and 1971. He is often mistaken for his more famous father, also named Frank Lloyd Wright.
