Stereoscopic images of FLW work

Would people be interested in seeing some Stereo photos of Taliesin and s few other FLW works?

I have uploaded a few to flickr...

Thru that previously linked Flickr image, I found this link:

It appears to be draftings made in 2019 about Hillside during the Restoration work. Super interesting.

Thanks, Owen. Mr Wright encouraged or assigned apprentices to do graphic design; perhaps he even "let pass" the resulting work, without editing. But, as with the buildings, shouldn't we distinguish between designs made while he was alive and in charge, as opposed to posthumous work ? Later on that ...

So---are we convinced that all of these patterns are from the hand of Mr Wright ? I don't recognize half of them---and this final sentence makes me think that maybe there was some latter-day "inspiration" going on ? " Together, Spoonflower and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation are thrilled to ...

Well patron expectations have evolved over the years, and a lot of performing arts venues have had to expand their front of house to meet those expectations. Expanding bar fare and having a small cabaret space are good moves for diversifying revenue. But a paparazzi mural? Oh god.

I can understand how someone who lived at Taliesin would say that it is gone. The spark and life in a community is a incredibly delicate thing. And is hard to truly understand for people that were not there. I can only assume that the nature of the Taliesin community changed irrevocably after the pa...

Having only seen her sculpture, images of her costumes and videos of her dances, there is no denying that she was an intensely creative person. It is such a loss. I wish I could have met her.

Ultimately it had Wooden trusses for the first version and then Steel in the 1964 rebuild. The back wall Changed over the years. It would be interesting to know if any of those draftings in the Appendices have dates. There is a lot of changes over time, regardless of the 1964 rebuild. Here is a scre...
