In response to the COVID-19 situation, Wright in Wisconsin has decided to postpone our annual Wright and Like house tour from mid-June to later this year. We are working with the property owners and volunteers to determine their availability for an event late in the summer or early in the fall. We’l...

I would be hard pressed to imagine the photo not being from after his arrest. Why would he have been photographed prior to that, especially since he seems to be in a courtroom. Do we have documentation, no, but I think that is a very reasonable thing to surmise given the apparent setting, his demean...

It would have been in that context. Why refer to race at all in that situation, but it was repeatedly done in news accounts and Wright’s..

Alofsin's "Wright and New York"

I am only 100 pages into it, but I highly recommend Anthony Alofsin's "Wright and New York." I did not realize how much time Wright spent in exile from Taliesin in the City. I knew about the proposed apartments for St. Mark's in the Bouerie which were eventually realized as Price Tower (note that Br...

Many comments here and in Facebook's The Wright Attitude say, in effect, that people are more interested in the architecture than the man. How can one understand the architecture fully without exploring the complexity of the man who created it? I respect how meticulously Hendrickson details his rese...

"Outside In" has the answer (I do not visit Wright Chat often...best to email me or message me). But I am not aware of JRM being involved in the Robert and Rita Albert House, 1941, (shown). He was apparently involved in the Carl Albert House, 1949 (I believe). The Robert and Rita House led to Edgar ...
