Re: House on the Mesa

What struck me when I first saw the drawings and model of this house ( lat 80's), is how courtyard typology its layout was. I have subsequently been acquainted with the work of John Gaw Meem, who developed the "pueblo revival style" in Sante Fe in the late 20's, with a strong reflection of the court...

I ask as the ones I have received- seem to me to not included a full set of construction drawings - but various working out of parts of the construction and early preliminary design studies. Im kinda ...

Re: Plans of Jacobs House II

Then using what I garnered from all that, I made a design for a client on their rural property. This has an outward aspect ( rather than inward) to capture as much winter light as possible - when it rains alot - hence the attached glasshouse.

Re: Plans of Jacobs House II

I wonder how he went.? I studied the house back in the 90's after I purchased the Jacobs book from the Taliesin west book store. If I remember correctly I even got to look at the drawings in the Taliesin vault - thanks Bruce for that - was a delight . Those might be at the Avery archive now? I made ...

Re: Organic architecture

Ive used his wilderness scale to show others the value of productive design as compared to consumptive design!

It really is a fantastic( and simplisitic) way of measuring. - How would Mr Wrights design fair?
