Wow, that might be the best site on the east coast.

Re: Dealing with visitors in this time of COVID

Roderick, https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-care/scientists-were-close-coronavirus-vaccine-years-ago-then-money-dried-n1150091 If you start from the premise that a vaccine won't be found, or science won't make big advancements in treatment in the medium-term, then you quickly find your "logic" i...

Ethics aside, another problem with 'Let all the young healthy people get sick and we'll get herd immunity'=

Re: Dealing with visitors in this time of COVID

To be clear, I'm not suggesting the country should remain in a permanent lockdown. "Low-risk" businesses and activities should be opened. As I wrote in my earlier response to Mr. Whiting, the science is now pointing to crowded indoor areas like restaurants, bars, and schools as being very risky, due...

Re: Dealing with visitors in this time of COVID

The more young people "get it" the better it is for us old people...since most of them will be asymptomatic. This statement is factual, but I'm not sure it's ethical. Younger people are dying, too, some of respiratory arrest, others from strokes due to the blood clotting nature of Covid. Reports ou...

Re: Dealing with visitors in this time of COVID

I'm very troubled by any indoor visiting at this point. The discussion about "aerosol" transmission is only beginning to come forward, but it appears Covid is airborne and the virus loves the indoor environment: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/06/health/coronavirus-airborne-aerosols.html?auth=login-...

Re: Allen Friedman house - Illinois

It's true! ... and everytime I'm surprised that I didn't know. Brings back a fond memory of mine. I'm about 28 years old, having lunch with a friend in a restaurant that was a remodeled 1950's auto showroom. Tall ceilings with tall windows, maybe 20 feet high. Little bench seating beneath.... Music...

Re: New Look!

We're all in a great debt to your service, SDR, for providing us such high-quality images for all these years. I suppose the cost of server storage to allow photo uploads might be an issue for the Conservancy. If that is the case, I hope they let us know. I'd support their determination of where the...

Re: New Look!

SDR- my request is that the server of Wright Chat would allow attachment uploads. This means someone could post a photo from their private collection to the Wright Chat without having it hosted elsewhere. This would both be expedient for users and just nice to have, but also would allow WC to archiv...

Re: New Look!

Like the new look as well.
How about the ability for us to share pictures (from personal uploads, not previously hosted images...)?
From my understanding, this would require the site's user settings to allow attachments:

Re: Wright and Exposed Structure?

I suppose something like this qualifies:

Not really what I was fishing for, though....
Perhaps the cantilever is too obvious (in comparison to Wright)?

Re: Wright and Exposed Structure?

Wright often engaged in some architectural magic by placing a band of windows beneath the roof volume, making it appear that the roof is floating with no substantial means of support https://www.arch2o.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Arch2O-FrankLloydWright-Houses11.jpg Has any other architect attem...
