The Deck Line

Seagull is a wonderful, open and functional design. I've stayed there nine days. The reason behind the deck line is simple... It is to see the shore of Lake Superior from anywhere on the main floor. There is about nine feet of exposed rock shoreline. When foul weather creates waves, the vertical spl...

Video down temporarily

Yes, the video is down temporarily, and hopefully replaced next week.

We need to remove the rendering and insert different music until production licensing is finalized.

Hope you enjoyed the sneek peek!

Blocks

Jack did not develop the blocks, at least in the extant drawings. Though there is no information to say otherwise, it is fairly safe to assume the blocks were really interlocking facia and tied togther as Wright's textile blocks. Personally, I agree with you. Tilt-up would be a great way to construc...

So true...

Both Jack Howe and Wes Peters saw some of what was coming.

I need to verify, but was under the impression both had their licenses before FLLW passed.

Details on "Concrete Block House"

Hello, Thank you for the strong interest in "Concrete Block House." While the goal of the film is to raise awareness about Howe and his work. It's also important to assure that the archives doesn't become flooded with requests. Even positive interest can have unintended negative effects. (Trust me, ...

Cat's out of the bag...

Cat is out of the bag... This animation was intended as part of the surprise for the John "Jack" Howe documentary film. Four years ago, I promised you this film would be spectacular... This John Howe design is titled "Concrete Block House", was drawn in 1945, and the design was never built. The tong...

Thanks!

Thanks to ALL! It's been a while... Summer temperatures are great, but thick foliage doesn't make for the greatest photography. So, lots of time spent learning the new Final Cut edit software and logging footage for edit. Also, working on preparing the Kickstarter gifts. A new Howe audio interview h...

Gift Shop & Museum... Good idea, but needs more.

Hello, Turning the A.D. German Warehouse into a gift shop and museum is a nice idea, but it won't work on it's own. There of course is the draw of nearby Taliesin, but that alone isn't enough to make the cost of acquisition and renovation economically feasible. One look there (Taliesin East), shows ...

John Howe Documentary Title - Explanation

Thanks for noticing the pending project on John Howe. The official title for the film is: "John H. Howe, Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright's Master of Perspective". The Kickstarter 'name field' only allowed 64 characters. The title for that web site had to be condensed: to fit in the name field, and dra...
