Re: Kamal Amin R.I.P.

I recently finished reading Mr. Amin's interesting memoir entitled "Reflections from the Shining Brow". It provides some good information about the Taliesin Fellowship during Wright's time and from 1959 through the late 1970s. Has his house at Taliesin West been featured in any publications?

Lovness Cottage

While searching for information about the Lovness cottage, I came across the Spring 2018 edition of the Seth Peterson Cottage Conservancy newsletter which has a brief article about both cottages (see pages 4, 5, & 7). Page 7 shows illustrative floor plans of both designs: https://sethpeterson.org/do...

According to information from the Parkwyn Village website, Ruth and Lawrence Strong commissioned Wright to design their house in 1950. Following their relocation, the subsequent owners (I assume Rosie and Bill Wechter) worked with architect Norman F. Carver, Jr., to complete the project: http://park...

Perhaps the Conservancy or other organizations such as Crystal Bridges or the Guggenheim may be interested in helping to find ways to preserve/restore and possibly display the remaining fragments. It could be a worthwhile effort provided the items are in salvageable condition.

The ceiling heights for the Exhibition house and Trier are mentioned on this webpage (see captions for photos 2 & 3): http://www.steinerag.com/flw/Artifact%20Pages/PhRtS398ny.htm I have yet to find any mention of the ceiling height for Feiman. It is unusual that the Exhibition workspace doesn't appe...

As SDR noted, it would be interesting to learn what became of the post-1984 remains of the exhibition house. Is the 1953 souvenir publication the best source of information for the Usonian Exhibition House? http://www.steinerag.com/flw/Books/sixty.htm#1953Front http://www.steinerag.com/flw/Artifact%...

Gilmore's work reminds me of the design work by E. Fay Jones, especially the stonework.

Mod mom,

My apologies for the confusion! I mistakenly thought from a previous post that you had owned the Brotherton house at one time.

I look forward to seeing the documentary of your restoration. I'm glad that Gunning/Glenbrow has found the perfect owners after all of these years.

Mod mom, I appreciate the information about Tony Smith's apprenticeship. I'll have to take another look at the Suntop Houses and the Armstrong House in Storrer's catalog. On a related note, did you complete a restoration of the Brotherton house? The poem from "The Pattern of Organic Life in America"...

SDR, I am curious about the concrete block house as well. The Bultman Studio page is indeed a delightful exercise.

Many thanks for the info, Mod mom. Interesting lives indeed!

Perhaps I've missed it, but how long did Tony serve as an apprentice at Taliesin?

Thanks for the interesting discussion about Tony Smith's work. Is anyone aware of photos of Smith's architectural work that may be available (in addition to the interesting Gunning house)? My searches have not proved very fruitful thus far. Mod mom, I commend your family's efforts to faithfully rest...
