Re: Video: Unity Temple - Oak Park, IL

Do the Martin numbers include purchase of the real estate?

Is Kamin right when he says at 1:30 that the corner columns are what hold the building up? I thought it was the walls and clerestory columns. Bok at 19:35 seems to say this too.

Re: Wright in the movies

Have we mentioned that Reisley has a cameo in The Girl on the Train as the psychotherapist's house? On Amazon Prime I counted 3 scenes, one at 47:40, another at 1:00:22.
