This is a sundial designed by the Architect Frank Lloyd Wright. It is part of the campus of Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. The buildings Frank Lloyd Wright designed were constructed from 1939 to 1958. There are other buildings not designed by him on campus, including one that opened this year. The sundial is part of the original campus design by Wright. I visited here in 1989.
