Re: Alsop House

I was mistaken here. The house has 4 bedrooms, but one is very small.

Re: Alsop house news

The windows were definitely replaced with vinyl Pella windows. I don’t recall Gordon mentioning concrete in the fireplaces.

Alsop house news

It is with great sadness that I share the news that Gordon Bollinger, the owner of the Alsop house here in Oskaloosa, Ia. passed away two days ago. His sister has decided to sell the house including all of Wright’s original furniture, which is in excellent condition. The Alsop and Lamberson houses w...

Possibly relevant to the subject of Broadacre and Jim Crow, I’m looking forward to seeing this exhibit tomorrow at MoMA:

Re: FLlW and Jim Crow

Broadacre City as a planning concept (and its possible relationship to environmentalism, sprawl, racial injustice and white flight) deserves more critical analysis, in order to truly contemplate its strengths and weaknesses. The fossil fuel consuming automobile being so central to its design is extr...

New Pritzker winners Lacaton and Vassal

“When you go to the doctor,” said Jean-Philippe Vassal, “they might tell you that you’re fine, that you don’t need any medicine. Architecture should be the same. If you take time to observe, and look very precisely, sometimes the answer is to do nothing.” “Demolishing is a decision of easiness and s...

RM Schindler Walker House

This was one of the major highlights of the 2019 Los Angeles conference. Romano understands what he has, and the house sings because of his stewardship.

Re: Peterson/Lovness 2000 ?

The article say the walls are “clad in stone”. Does that imply that they are block covered with stone, inside and out?

Re: former FLWBC board member passes

This is just terrible news. I’m so sorry. I met Dan indirectly first through Wright Chat, then later in person when he nominated us for the Wright Spirit Award in 2016. He was a lovely, creative man, and so helpful and supportive to us. His stewardship of the Dobkins house was superb. We send our de...

Re: Sure, we can call anything "Frank Lloyd Wright"

Realtor speak: The house’s “prominent linear lines”... As for compression and release- What makes Wright’s use of this unique is that he does this not by accident or to save space, but to create a specific sensation.
