Another is an open perforated board on the lower level Ark doors bookmatched to form a symmetrical 3 shape perf. Excellent photos by Bradley Maule here: http://hidde...

First, Thanks for WC support! Second, now that I have returned to this research, I am going backwards: reviewing the basic list of buildings with perfs, rereading the basic source Wright tomes again.

The Perf Project

Friends, I have started a gofundme site for financial aid to finalize the perf project research for a manuscript. I need to get to the Columbia University Archives. Finances and arthritis stymied this study far too long and with a new hip & knee, I'm ready for a couple of weeks of big city walking &...

It should not be forgotten that wood board ceilings were drawn to relate to the geometry of the plan quite differently than slab floors. The concrete was striated with a simple grid: only intersections between changes in axis or wall interruptions altered unit shape and size. Indeed, the building is...

Screen Usonian Porch Construction Information

Some Usonians have trellis construction screened porches in wood, others in steel pipe or rod.
How is the screening attached? (How often was copper screen noted?)
Can torn screen be easily replaced?
Has anyone seen specified drawings on building sheets?
Does anyone have detail photos?
