Re: Guggenheim museum

So, from the iso drawings it appears that major supply ducts are formed into the concrete and spiral with the ramp. It was a great question to ask. Never occurred to me.

When I was was there the dining room lights were not.
Worth another trip back just to see them.

Re: Affleck House Analysis

I recently used on my own house the TPW product that I read about being used on the Pope-Leighey restoration. It is a stain that soaks into the wood. They have a clear stain which gives no UV protection. So I used the 'Natural' colored stain which has the UV filter- the one used at Pope-Leighey and ...

Here it is again.
In terms of the interiors shaped by the roof what other house is this related to?

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...
