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

Hi, folks! I did not see this before this afternoon because I have been on indefinite furlough since March 13 (which is still going on). You'd think I would have had time to read these Wrightchat pages, but I've been (a) correcting Wikipedia pages on the "Frank Lloyd Wright works"; (b) making my way...

Box Projects

In Taliesin Diary: A Year with Frank Lloyd Wright, Priscilla Henken mentioned creating a project for Wright's birthday box (in May & June). There's a reproduction of the project, which was a school building.

But she didn't analyze why they had to be done.

"grazing" lease

Thank you, Rood. That makes a lot of sense. And that explains things about the canal you cross when getting to Taliesin West. So happy the Foundation bought the tall hill - as you know it makes a difference. We're lucky in Wisconsin (as you know) that the estate goes to the tops of the hill across f...

Talieisn West land

I thought it had been sold a while ago. Perhaps I'm just thinking about something I read in the early 2000s.

You're welcome

Mark - I figured you knew who I was because someone outed me here on The Wright Attitude page on Facebook (I'm carrying around the fear of revealing myself based on 15-year-old, pre-Facebook warnings). I'm Keiran. My name makes sense in that case.

Poking around Taliesin

I've overlooked your last posts of photos from Taliesin. It's so great to see your detailed photos. Not the "usual" little details that one gets in many photographs. It's because you know the building so well. I was just remembering the first time I went down to the Guest Wing (where the Rose room i...

Wite-out

Yes, the outside is beautiful, but the white interior is overwhelming. I'm guessing that the bones of the building are good so, if you had the money, get rid of all of that white stuff & return it to what the architect (hopefully) intended.

"of [WHATEVs] time"

Glad I looked at the statements by others here because it's obvious that those who oversaw the article don't know what they're talking about.

Greek Orthodox

Mark,
I think Monona Terrace was what I associated those lights with, but I figured that you might feel they weren't *really* Wright (depending on how long someone wants to get into *that* conversation, which I don't feel like doing).

I can see why Sara Barnes (the author of the article) screwed up the date on Fallingwater (the commission of which came in 1935), but I've no idea how she f-ed up the date on Guggenheim commission. 1939? How did that happen? And later on, writing that the commission took "15 years"... ok, that bring...

The Future of Architecture

Boy seems like a lot. Looking at abebooks.com, there are 2 in the $3,000 range, than it jumps down to a price in the 500s. I guess if you want to pay that much for his signature, go ahead.

Tony Smith

Modmom1: I had heard that Tony Smith was an apprentice under Wright for a short time, but had no idea he'd done architecture. Finding out that he'd been an apprentice was one thing (there are lots that were who never practiced), but finding out he actually did architecture is a huge shocker to me. I...

That's the project number for the drawings of the space underneath the Roberts Rm. that FLW was thinking about for an archive in the floor below. It would have been interesting if work had been done on that. At least one of those drawings is reproduced in the Completed Buildings , v. 3. The Fellowsh...
