Re: RESIDENCE B - Hollyhock House

I purchased the Getty Museum published book, Spirit into Matter-The Photographs of Edmund Teske, several years ago because it included photographs of Tony Smith, Tony's wife Jane Lawrence and Ted van Fossen that Teske took during their time together in Los Angeles. There is a chronology section in ...

Re: Davy Davison

Two questions: Who is Davy Davison and are the photographs available to link to online? Google "Davey Davison and Frank Lloyd Wright" ... and they come up. There is also a photo of Davey with Mr. Wright ... standing in front of a fireplace ... I believe at Taliesin West ... in what was the original...

Re: Davy Davison

"... and reached by the passage-way which crosses over the original driveway to the entrance of the "house". I'm a bit confused, unless you're referring to the balcony (passageway?) on the original court side connected to the tower and parallel to the hayloft, which also crossed over the exit drive...

Re: FLW SOA - SOAT CLOSES JUNE 2020

Without knowing anything about the financial workings of the FLLWFoundation ... or the School, since I left in 1977 ... this quote from Aaron Betsky's statement is almost exactly what I have long assumed. When I was at Taliesin ... most members of the Staff received a stipend of $100.00 a month, and...

Just announced, public tours of Taliesin West are suspended until March 31, or upon notice. This action follows similar closures by Fallingwater, The Gordon House, etc. Be safe. Be well.
There goes the Golden Goose. What no one seems to know is the year in March .... perhaps 2021?

Re: Davy Davison

Yes, if you are in the lower parking lot, which overlooks the entrance road below, and the dam and spillway to the north and east, and turn around to face towards the building ... the Davison apartment is on the the third story above the parking area. It's on the same level as Iovanna's apartment .....

Re: FLW SOA - SOAT CLOSES JUNE 2020

Mr. and Mrs. Wright organized Taliesin as a tripod ... one leg the overseeing Foundation, the second leg Mr. Wright and his architectural practice (later: TAA), and the third leg being the Apprentice program, with young enthusiastic apprentices continually providing fresh blood. Storms may have lash...

Re: FLW SOA - SOAT CLOSES JUNE 2020

The trouble is that originally the "School" and the Foundation were primarily conceived as one and the same ... one complemented the other. Today, lacking an architectural arm, which once largely supported both the Foundation and the "School", the Foundation has no real purpose, other than to make e...

Can we assume that the project went no further than the perspective renderings -- that there are no working drawings for these houses ? SDR Working drawings exist ... but completed after Mr. Wright's death under the supervision of Wes Peters. At one point during the 70's the family began serious in...
