The property is 2.5 acres and descends 100ft from the entry road to the waterline. The slope from the waterline is gra...

Re: Falling Water landscape drawings

Good catch. Wonder what happened. These trees appear in a few of the perspective renderings. Bet Wright really wanted them there. I can't find a shot in my books so far that show those trees. EKjr's book has another shot of them before the flagstone came down and the larger shot you show from the We...

Re: finding original furniture & original plan set for the charles l. manson house, wausau wisconsin

Would love to see shots of those plans posted here on Wright Cha if not too much trouble.
Congratulations David on your new house.
I've been up to WahooSahoo to see it.
We hiked through the Porcupines and the coast of Lake Superior.
Wisconsin is gorgeous.

Re: House on the Mesa

Appreciate having attention called to the blinds. Didn't see until you pointed it out that the original blinds were "taped." I do remember as a young person thinking the tapeless blinds were so cool. Most of the Mies that I've seen had tapeless Levelor blinds installed. BTW - I requested the Mesa Ho...

Re: For sale: John Lautner's Williams House - Los Angeles, CA

Thanks for the plans, elevations, and shots.
Even with all the info - hard to comprehend the unity of what's going on.
Great house - only in California.

Re: House on the Mesa

Yep thanks for posting the link. Wonder when Seagrams will renovate. I think I remember reading somewhere it's one of the least energy efficient buildings in NYC. Still all 1/4" glass panes. ... I think it also holds the record for being the most expensive modern building ever built per unit cost. E...

Re: House on the Mesa

I'm not claiming any direct connction by this but it is interesting to note the very general similarity between the living room pavilion of the Mesa House and the IIT College of Architecture in Chicago many decades later. Both structures place double beams on top and incorporate them into the image ...
