Re: Video: Tour of Taliesin - Spring Green, WI

SDR I've never seen such large images of these sheets before now, thank you! The joinery details of the window mullions and sills are particularly interesting, being able to see these details really crystallizes how Wright was envisioning Taliesin's components. I imagine with managing exterior water...

Re: Video: Tour of Taliesin - Spring Green, WI

In the tour of the courtyards, Ryan Hewson describes the various visual/compositional components Wright used at Taliesin, and in the comments Elaine Keiser asked "...how did Mr. Wright transition from the plaster to the cyma reversa? In regards to water management and flashing, etc that we now use i...

As a young person who deeply loves architecture (and has been picturing his own house 'round a hill in the same way our beloved Frank had,) I can guarantee that the 'overload' phenomena is real for many others too JimM. Especially, I think, for young architects and architectural critics, who see a g...

I follow the illustrator Nico Delort, who was commissioned to illustrate the Blue Sky Mausoleum in Buffalo for this show. He was posting Works In Progress of the work only two or so weeks ago, so I would guess most of these are recently made! They're all wonderful! Especially that print of Taliesin.

Hello all! I'm a long time lurker and actually found something to contribute! While there isn't a very big gap between the dates of the designs, The Charles P. Lowes Residence [1922] and the John Storer Residence [1923] have nearly the same floorplan. Though on first glance at the presentation drawi...
