Re: Video: Barnsdall "Hollyhock" House - Los Angeles, CA

I'd like to preface the following response by saying I've been away from Hollyhock for a long time and have not kept current on what I believe are the many still undiscovered secrets regarding the house (plus the memory banks aren't quite what they were in the 80s). And Roderick is an old and admire...

Re: Oboler property - I heard a suggestion on the Lautner Facebook page the other day that Kevin Parkhurst from Eric's practice has gotten expansion of the Oboler Estate to Mr. Wright's original plan approved by the Coastal commission - apparently a 10 year ordeal. If true, this would suggest there'...

I fear for both Eric & Mary and the Oboler property. Both are right on the edges of the evacuation areas. I know they evacuated the Malibu Wines Safari yesterday, which is just down the road from Oboler and their website says they lost some structures. www.lasafaris.com

Imperial chair w/o the trim (taken during her honeymoon with Joltin' Joe), although the chair next to Marilyn appears to have a different wood trim from the Hollyhock picture from Hoffman.

To Rod's point (It seems obvious that the intention of the windows, metal or glass, was to allow ventilation, otherwise, what would be the point of the design?) - this design was also planned for the Haldorn project, just around the point from Walker.

there may be provenance issues with some of the photos in the archive - the Will Connell pix from the 40's may need permission to reprint.

Stan - not sure how the archive has been maintained after all of the years since my hands on involvement but while I was still active, I collected and bagged paint chip samples from the dining room soffits and they were stored initially in the main file cabinets we had at the time. I think you'd be ...

I believe there's some discussion of the winding road and parking issues in the correspondence with Lucius and Jorgine Boomer when they initially contemplated rebuilding Pauson with some additional changes/additions - changes that did not go over well with Wright. Unfortunately, due to some home ren...

a slight correction to my old friend Roderick's mention of the Carter's occupation of the home in the 80's. John Carter, known professionally as just Carter by most, was in the music business, not TV. his most well known success story was the restoration of Tina Turner's career in 1983 as her A&R re...
