"This is an epic chance for me to write my own reviews.

And all my reviews will be about escort services in Delhi!

I thought we had a way of keeping these spammers and bots off this site! Especially if they signed up on the day they posted.

Plagued By Fire

I'm disturbed that the cover photo is a stock one which we have seen many times before. It has nothing to do with the title. How about a photo one of the many Taliesin fires?

"Mrs. Wrights"

Please include the client Nancy Willey of Minneapolis. She was much more the client than was her husband, Malcolm. She wrote to Wright and then supervised the construction (1933) of her house. She even fed the workers when they went on strike!

"I haven't had Blu-ray before; what hardware is employe

LA fire

I'm now concerned about ALL of Wright's structures in CA. I understand that even the Getty Museum is in danger. The Eames house has also been evacuated. Do we yet know the new owner of the Sturges house? Is there any fire protection available for these places? Wish we had been able to visit the Stur...

Robie House declared a Masterpiece (again)

From Blair Kamin, Chicago Tribune:
"It’s a masterpiece. The word, often overused, fits. Let’s use it."

Oboler

Thanks, Stan, for the (horrible) photos.

It must have been heartbreaking to visit the site.

As an outsider, I wonder why fire-suppression devices can't be installed on all these important structures (i. e. external sprinklers).

Moonlight Point

It actually has some "Wrightian" elements. Not bad. A fantastic graphics presentation.
