Re: The Illinois 'Mile-High' Tower Architectural Model

Roderick beat me to it, but posting the following since I can't get the twenty minutes back! From the "Illinois" Wikipedia page: In his 1957 book, A Testament, Wright described the proposed structure with floor plans of the “base”, 320th, and 528th (highest) floors.[1] The floor plan for the 320th f...

My criticism is that when going to a site that has been posted, it no longer brings up a new tab. This is cumbersome if one wants to go back and forth.
This is the only function that has taken a few visits for me to get used to... once "retrained", it's not much of an inconvenience.

Re: Davy Davison

"... and reached by the passage-way which crosses over the original driveway to the entrance of the "house". I'm a bit confused, unless you're referring to the balcony (passageway?) on the original court side connected to the tower and parallel to the hayloft, which also crossed over the exit drive...

Re: Curbed LA Looks at Richard Neutra's First Commission

Interesting that according to the 1950 Schumann photo in the article, Schindler did not intend the "step up" detail at the corner windows to be painted a different color than the wall plane. All corners have the same treatment, but only the corner section Schumann details has the "step up". Anyone k...

Re: FLW SOA - SOAT CLOSES JUNE 2020

After reading a link from the PrairieMod newsletter, I was surprised-and did not previously know, that the Foundation ultimately had the final say whether the school could exist... in any manner.

Re: Book: "Growing up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House"

Although Rochester was not on the way to anywhere and Martin was pretty much complete by the start of Boynton, Wright was quite hands on throughout construction-apparent in the detailing. He recounted having workmen set him up with timber and tarp lodging during many trips to the site. This most lik...

Re: FLW SOA - SOAT CLOSES JUNE 2020

I guess I simply don't completely understand the tremendous disconnect between the school and foundation. I've always felt the school to be a logical priority, and as part of a whole, almost justifying the marketing of Wright; the foundations primary stock in trade over the years. Without such price...

I missed Marks December post and was not aware of Ron McCrea's passing until visiting this link.

An enviable career and many endeavors, we are especially grateful fo...

Initially for Taliesin ll (circa 1915) there was not a second story. The main changes to the residence footprint included the new loggia and an extension beyond the porte cochere alongside the drive, but not as extensive shown in the photo. My guess is it was taken in the late 20's...
