Thanks Roderick!

I have tried to use a different color for those plants, but yes, in some shots they don't differ well from the background

So is! The design includes some stone-finished partitions, specifically the fireplace area, but they are not visible from the outside. For this project, there are complete constructive drawings. I have also modeled version two of this house for the magazine, whose design instead was much more prelim...

Why did Cassina decide to remove the metal supports from Wright's original design? It is a beautiful detail.

Some time ago, I modeled the Taliesin chair following, approximately, the famous Wright drawing that circulates on the internet: http://sdrdesign.com/origami.jpg And this is the result: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48954744886_2b5011f471_z_d.jpg (You can see a version of this finished model w...

Interesting reflection I will take that into account! Usually, I place the (virtual) camera at the average height of a person, over 5 foot 9 inches, although this is not set in stone, using these standards improves the understanding of the image. Although it is true that in the era of drone photogra...

Why was Wright the only really popular architect of his generation? Popular in the sense of widely acclaimed by the general public. If we compare him with Mies, Le Corbusier or Aalto, no other architect was so famous outside the profession. I do not have an answer to that but I intuit that the quest...

You are absolutely right Roderick. One of the versatility of computer recreation is precisely to explore different paths. Regarding the lamp or ornament that appears in the section drawing, it disappeared in the final drawings, Wright added instead six more simple pendant light fixtures, which hung ...

The question of the rear ramp was, of course, the subject of controversy when recreating this building. Which version is more appropriate to recreate? The original idea of the architect or the final result of adapting his ideas to the needs of the clients? Especially considering that in this case, t...

In the working drawings, the rear ramp disappeared probably at the indication of the client, although Wright kept the "drive-in" rear windows on the ground floor and the space needed for cars to circulate, this circulation on the other hand is what gives meaning to the cylindrical shape of the build...

A couple of images corresponding to the Valley National Bank that came out in FLLW Foundation Quarterly Magazine last year, but that had not been shown on the internet until now. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48766156681_fe3a3571be_c_d.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48766156671_19d1c5...

David, some things take a long time. You are building a reputation that will serve you well in the future. "Profit-taking as a motive for a civilization does not seem to be the ennobling basis for one." Frank Lloyd Wright Architectural Forum January 1938 Thanks, Roderick! I agree with you and with ...

Re: Wright Model Making?

I'm thinking of turning my model-making hobby into a side business. Does this board think there is a market for custom bass wood architectural models of Wright designs? What do you think would be a fair price? The ballpark is easily hundreds and possibly thousands depending on the complexity of the...
