The lesson here is don’t sabotage someone’s work because you wanted someone else besides the outsider. Did they not realize Wright’s work on Johnson Wax had similar questions of structure and they passed? I mean really it’s sad they did anything they could to get it to no...

Thank you DRN for clarifying that. I did not know he used it. Found early pics and a render from the churches Facebook. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48450447136_24b8d73d7f_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48450447201_41d85a5d88_b.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48450604422_a9...

If only Wright knew of Thin Shell Concrete. If anyone wonders what can be done with thin shell with rebar and wood forming here is an example. This church was designed by architect Bill Ryan in 1959 for Immanuel Lutheran Church in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/484476707...

There may be a reason I never uploaded the photos of the home April 2009 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48441394197_3b67deb477_o.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48441273776_0b1129c8a2_o.jpg August 2019 https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48441394157_6f9feb0933_c.jpg https://live.staticf...

Wright- ambitious genius who, at times, was stifled by incompetent contractors who failed to see or execute his vision properly. The community church was not a failure of a Wright design, rather it is a failure of the clients budget, city, and contractor. It still is a gem but Wright was none to ple...

I just merely drew a board and repeated that then draped the lines onto the surface below. This will look better with wood textures. The floors are ponderosa or southern yellow pine. The wood has an oil based coating with Johnson’s wax. This darkens the wood to the “Cherokee red� ...

2019 revisit model. Wood, cemestos, and concrete block textures see by me. This is just the work in progress at the moment. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48419536377_48bd2e7181_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48419381971_754e1550de_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4841953499...

The module of the home is 4 ft 4 in not 4 ft.

The home included a bar-b-que pit on the first floor, going up the home had an interesting sofa with built in storage behind the back rest. It’s similar to Carlson but on a bit of a grander scale, in my opinion.

He designed the BOK Center in Tulsa, the largest ramp in the world, as of 2008, and his only arena. I was there at the opening and walked right by Pelli and a group of people. I would have taken a photo but alas I did not as I was enamored by the shear beauty of the building, a very modernistic yet ...

To bad you can’t move the tower to Tulsa, the concept works well here.

If the hotel was more of a Hilton curio collection it’d likely sustain better. I just have ideas but lack the money to invest.

I guess I am the crazy few who would live in the Tower. They have a grant to fix the outdated boiler and air system. To bad those slim A/c units, which Japan uses, are hard to put into a building like Price Tower, but I am sure there is a way. I would happily, when I have better income, just buy a s...

They do have a handicap room. With this being on the register, the elevators, stairs, and ceilings are not exactly code. This is a detriment to this building but I doubt it will go through considering the fact it’s three apartments, there’s a museum, it’s historic and nothing is...

Here is the unbuilt hassock for the tower. Colors will be fixed later on after I tackle the easy chair. I still have to construct the stenographer chair and dining chair for the model. I have included images from when I was last working on the model in early 2013. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535...
