Nice to meet you here, Mr Pryon. I read your article on the Kinney House, several years ago before meeting Mrs. Kinney at her home to photograph the perfs. Thank you, it was a good introduction. Your early photos of the House are important. What was the date after construction?

Roderick- First of all, French Impressionism is a school of art, a way of thinking and seeing. Individual objects like Monet’s Hay Stacks and Renoir’s le Moulin de la Galette are impressionists works that still speak and you can read their story without knowing their dates or locations- yes even...

Although my understanding of architecture is fairly broad and informs my pschological expectation of functional architecture, I can admire visually the concise minimalism of step form without rail...but I cannot use them. The visceral sense (and sad reality) of insecurity is overpowering. My experie...

To my mind:

History belongs in the minds, muscles and blood of Life.

The structures of Auschwitz need no story. The buildings talk.

Lots of art loses its validity and finishes talking.

Although he acknowledged the heroic monumentality of Battersea, he’s slightly mystified by the public affection for the plant—people seem to forget that it is, after all, “a culprit in the history of pollution of the Thames,� and something that has helped destroy the climate. “It’s like...

Regarding perf boards: photo evidence seems to indicate the use of butt or utility hinges most often, sadly. However the sheets I have seen specifically state under HARDWARE notations the following: ALL HINGES SHALL BE THE CONTINUOUS PIANO TYPE. (I'll send detail of Rubin Hardware notes sheet 6 to S...

David Johnson surprises many people each workday morning with an email photograph from his collection of Wright building photos. I think his email list grows by word of mouth. I hope he reads Wrightchat and will take on more people.

SDR, I probably heard a colloquial name.

Danford Chapel clerestory today's Daily Wright

Todays' Daily Wright image is an image I need to discuss. SDR, (I think you receive Daily Wright) would you post it please? It is a photo of the Danford Chapel (Minor Chapel, 1954) at FSC; a view of the terrace and clerestory windows. These appear to be rippled orange colored glass and clear rippled...

Searching for something else, I found this site. There are some interesting recent photos of crannies and corners I haven't seen, as well as, some older familiar ones.

What a sad story- an audience with m'Lady in curlers and gofers- as a representation of the whole.
Roderick, I don't know what I would have done under those circumstances...but I'm sure you were a gentleman.

If specific objects of art & architecture have sociological meaning that contributed directly to broad cultural progress it seems imperative to keep them. They are tangible expressions of human ideas. The concept of a village hospital in urbanized America was radical but came from the simplest of th...

Wright and the Dobkins House have the luck and joy of Dan and Dianne's respect, appreciation, work and skills. I've said it before: they are the perfect second homeowners. If history could work backwards: Imagine what Wright would have wrought for Dianne and Dan if they had been original clients!
