SDR, Pamela Kingsbury, who wrote the book on Hoult, "Frank Lloyd Wright and Wichita, the First Usonian Design," would disagree with you on that claim. Hoult and Lusk were close, but Hoult gets the cigar. Drawings and a timeline display for the unbuilt Hoult Usonian #1 are available to view at the A...

I think they have had some lean years since their major donor, Boots Adams passed away. These items were recently donated to the Tower from the Carolyn Price estate and they decided to sell instead of warehouse them. Also sold was a collection of 4 glass cullet pieces from Bruce Goff's ShinenKan, wh...

A company located in Norman Oklahoma has done several Falling Water models scaled at 1" = 7.25'. These are more museum quality than standard consumer grade, I believe the pricing just north of $6,000 per model. Follow this link for more info on their model: https://architectural-models.com/galfallwa...

How many duplexes are in use by the Inn at Price Tower? Will this plan remove the possibility of a recreation of Bruce Goff’s home and studio from photos? Floors 9-10 were used by Bruce Goff as his work/live space until 1964 when he moved to Kansas City MO. They are currently unused as Inn p...
