Re: 1962 documentary about FLW

I’m relieved this experience didn’t hamper your appreciation of Wright’s architecture. Were Howe and Hill still there at the time?

Did you continue architecture studies elsewhere?

Re: For Sale: John Randall McDonald - Brookfield, Wisconsin

That’s a lotta house (3,000 sq ft. and over an acre of land, for 370,000) for the price.

Is that a guest house over the carport, Paul?

The stone on the fireplace is unfortunate, but overall, it looks quite appealing.

Re: Japanese Architecture

How exciting! I hope it happens for you, and keep us posted. Antonin Raymond effectively bridged the worlds of Le Corbusier and Wright. (Bet you didn’t think that was possible?!) Definitely Ando. But check out Kengo Kuma, too. He is currently one of the most important. http://www.dezeen.com/tag/keng...

Re: 1962 documentary about FLW

Fascinating, Roderick.

Did you spend enough time there to develop relationships with Howe, Hill, or Peters?
What was the main reason you left?
Did you continue your architectural training elsewhere?

I hope they refunded your tuition!

Re: 1962 documentary about FLW

Wonderful. Such a charismatic figure! And Cronkite gives it all appropriate gravitas while pointing out the key ideas, quotes and works. Current video creators might benefit from noticing how the musical score underlines the ideas, instead of wallpapering everything with their favorite New Age music...

Re: Heaven can be found on Earth- T West 1946

It’s easy to flip a photo digitally. Can that be done with film?

Heaven can be found on Earth- T West 1946

Taliesin West 1946

If this has been shared already, please let me know. It’s new to me. Mark Knopfler’s Celtic piece sets an unlikely mood for the desert location, but somehow, it works.

Is it true that many of the images are reversed?

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

Roderick-please provide a reason why you think Trump won’t pardon yesterday’s criminals if he’s allowed to stay in office? After all, he loves them, thanks them for being special, and refers to them as “patriots”. And they love, even worship him, and more importantly, support him financially. Judgin...

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

Oh. It was a no way my intention to criticize you in any manner! And there was nothing which I found objectionable or “toxic” about any of your post(s).

My beef is only with apologists, defenders and supporters of 45.

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

I’m not ashamed of my posts.
I would be ashamed if I were to remain silent, or even more so, had I repeatedly defended a sociopath by creating false equivalencies.

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

The toxicity of social media became a topic related to your initial post. The recent siege and violent insurrection by fanatical Trump cult members upon receiving instructions from their leader via Twitter and Facebook relates to that, doesn’t it? The other topic raised was freedom of expression. If...

Treasonous cult leader to rioting followers after violent siege of Capitol:
“Go home, we love you, you’re special...”

He also promised them he would walk *with them* to the Capitol. Nothing worse than a lying, cowardly secessionist.

Looks like he might leave on his own by Jan. 20th.

Check out time: 12:00 noon. Leave your key at the front desk. Allow time to pay your incidentals.

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

Was he ever on the rails?

The problem with the 25th in this case is that Pence could pardon Trump and his numerous federal crimes. On the other hand, he might not be so inclined since Trump threw him under the bus.

The upside is obvious. We’d be rid of him.

Re: Should there be a new social media closed group for Wright?

Thank you.

Btw- Roderick. I guess you’re right. As an example of the destruction of freedom of speech, Twitter has just locked Trump out, and deleted his tweets calling for this insurrection/coup d’etat/covid super spreader/proud boys dress up party.
