Bellevue, WA houses.

A Facebook group I am in had pictures of the interior of a house built in 1965 by a Wright apprentice that is being gutted and remodeled. Pictures look like a Wright Usonian and very similar to Brandes. The only thing I could find on a websearch was a question about a lost Wright house that was temp...

Last month I toured Florida Southern College for my third time. Huge vent pipe tubes are installed in one of the buildings (Science lab?) Did not expect large steel vents cut through the floor and overhead on the roof. Can add photos of Non Wright changes if you don't have them. Another change, I th...

The WWP house was on tonight's local NBC news again. It is listed as being in the top ten most endangered landmark buildings in IN. Locals are working on preserving it. In the past, they had mentioned relocating it.

That sounds similar to the Robert Lamp house in Madison, WI. Not one of Wright's most attractive houses. It originally had a roof top patio/garden, since it was known it would soon be surrounded by houses.

I thought that might have been one of the ground floor rooms (since it didn't have the high pitched ceilings like most 2nd floor major rooms). I didn't realize it had an addition after QFC left.

Winslow house pictures

From SaveWright houses for sale page, I saw this picture from the Winslow house. This picture is a little confusing to me. Is this taken at the top of the stairs looking down? Is there some sort of octagonal box created in the stair railing? I hadn't seen pictures of this before. Another picture sho...

The only thing close to what would be a reproduction, 10 or so years ago they made a glass tile with the "flower design" on one side, but the back was smooth. Might have had 4 rubber feet on the smooth side. They were sold as drink coasters. I have never heard of any complete reproductions with the ...

I have been watching for 15 to 20 years, and have not noticed any reproductions so far. Ones with a K are just a different variation. I don't think you overpaid.

I guess it would be a benefit that if coffee or wine was spilled on the new carpet, nobody would notice.

This interior was removed from display several years ago and is now in storage. Hopefully they will put it back on display. Pictures I saw of it, there was no ceiling, open to the museum's high ceiling. I thought it originally had a wood ceiling. Hopefully they can make it look original. Maybe it i...

When I toured Monona Terrace in 2012, they had installed color changing LEDs in the one area, a large hall that went from the main entry to the lake. The entire ceiling went through a series of color changes, rather than white. The tour guide said she had not seen that before.

Paul,
There is the lobby from the Imperial Palace Hotel that was partially moved and reconstructed. Also pieces of Northome.

I like the old carpet better. It reminds me of the Wright designs for Schumacher in the 1950s. I took a picture of it too. The tour guide pointed out that the design points that same direction in every room. The arrow points to the Capitol, the curved side to the water. The new one seems to have tha...
