Re: Larkin Offices?

Those shots are great. Thanks. Hadn't seen some before. As I thought, the offices weren't completely enclosed spaces, but more partitioned parts of the larger space. A shame no one saved one of those enclosures.

Larkin Offices?

Much is made of the Larkin buildings open plan for workers, but did it have executive offices? I've seen a couple interior photos that featured masonry partitions, but nothing about enclosed executive offices.

Re: Rose and Gertrude Pauson house

Yes, saw that thread about copyright notices....but is the Avery sending digital files on request? What process is involved as I have seen nothing on their website about such a service?

Re: Rose and Gertrude Pauson house

Sorry if I missed this discussion, but when you say you've received drawings, do you mean that Avery is sending you digital files? Can anyone order materials from them?

Re: Kickstarting my Architecture Book

I don't know if the Wright project would have made much difference. The use of wood was pretty ingrained in the Northwest. Nuetra used wood on his Bay Area and Portland, OR projects. Wright sort of adopted a wood cliche for the Griggs house, originally a log-style cabin. Paul Kirk, oddly enough, did...

Re: Kickstarting my Architecture Book

The publishing process is well in hand. I have a good editor and designer on board. Done all the research and found a printer in Canada that will do a great job. Now it's just about raising the money.

Re: Kickstarting my Architecture Book

There are several NW mid-century architects who deserve comprehensive books. There is one slim book on Roland Terry, but it's a rather superficial book in my opinion. I've learned the economics of book publishing really make this endeavor difficult. As a result, the only books we see are those funde...

Re: Kickstarting my Architecture Book

Yes...modern in the Northwest really has its seeds in the Bay Area vernacular work of Wurster et al. Wood and a lot of T&G vertical siding. Yeon and Belluschi worked in that vein in Portland, Oregon, creating some very crisp houses...sort of photo- post-and-beam. Belluschi was the more serious by fa...

Thanks...I'll never figure out how to do links or photos on these threads. But that is the one. You had me worried for a second about there being competition. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kutzera/paul-hayden-kirk-book Paul Kirk was an early modernist in the Pacific Northwest.

Kickstarting my Architecture Book

Some of you know I've been working on a side project for years....a book on Seattle's leading mid-century modernist, Paul Hayden Kirk. You can learn more about his work at www.PaulHaydenKirk.com , and if you're in a generous mood, add to the Kickstarter campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...

Re: Archives to Avery Library/ Columbia University

Is G Dorn posting the plans he's listed online somewhere? I'd like to see them.

Another nice little one bedroom house. I didn't know much about it before but will add it to my list of small gems.

Re: Affleck House Analysis

Wasn't there a VC Morris house with a similar concrete roof? I've always wondered if such a roof was ever built and if it has survived well or not. So many thin-shell concrete structures have proven to be short-lived.

Re: Bernard Schwartz House

Is it safe to say that Wright could come up with the design, then Howe and others were left to making it work (where the steel would go)?

Has Anyone Published an Architecture Book?

So I've been research a local mid-century architect and now exploring how to publish a book. Anyone here experience in such a crazy endeavor? I'm researching printing...domestic or Asia...and also managing the editing and design myself or hiring a publisher to manage the process.
