That was a pretty crummy thing to do. Didn't he win some preservation award? Can we take it back?

Sorry if the word "competition" is a bit ambiguous. It can refer to a group of architects submitting proposals for a major project (ie the famous Tribune competition). But it can also refer ...

Interesting, but I think this is referring to the practice of having a committee evaluate various proposals for a major commission.

I'm more interested in honors that completed projects may have ...

"As part of the house donation, the school had to raise $7M for an endowment earmarked solely for the house by 2020."

Who established this requirement? The seller? I can hardly believe t ...

I lay some of the blame for his situation at the FLW School who rejected the donation of the house. The article mentions the need to raise millions for upkeep...which I find dubious. When someone is ...

Yes, there were plenty of lifetime honors, but I'm talking more about individual project competitions. There were a lot of such competitions in the pos-war boom years. I am assuming that Wright was so ...

I've been researching the 1950's recently and there were a lot of awards and competitions at the time for architecture. These were put on by magazines and AIA and building product manufacturers. I ne ...

I should read more about Eichler and how he worked with architects and builders. Some important lessons there.

He worked with A. Q. Jones (a UW Grad). What others were his go-to architects who co ...

I am working on a book about a NW Architect. Maybe I should consider a pre-release (heck a pre-manuscript) cover design.

How are you making use of the cover in your marketing?

Not familiar with this project at all. So there are no drawings? That may explain why I've never seen it in various books.

Question...the second floor is stepped back form the first, so there are t ...

I would expect, given the current owner's investment in the property, that covenants be included in any deal that prohibits the alteration of the house.

Great information. Thanks.

I'm researching Paul Hayden Kirk. Most of his homes of the 1940s had this odd system of radiant heat is cielings or floor or both. He did one of the Revere Quality Houses and that used a lot of copper ...
