" In doing so he naturally watered-down
the magic considerably"

I agree with this. It is interesting to hear the comparison between Erdman and "custom" Usonians when the Usoni ...

My problem with Erdman is that Wright wants to make a Usonian house in a prefab manner, rather than creating a design from easily replicated modular parts. Which is odd as Wright was all about the mod ...

Have they determined the cause of the latest fire?

Thanks for posting. I'd never seen those chairs before. Sort of a riff on the barrel chair only hexagonal. I'd be more interested in making one of them than tackling an origami chair. Are chair plans ...

There is so much going on in the drawings that I'm left wondering if the only way to really understand them is to build a house. I know the School has students build shelters out in the desert, but th ...

Are there any covenants attached to the sale? Does the buyer have to maintain the house as is? I'd hate to see some billionaire tear it down.

Look Great. Someone should have done this ages ago. Are they prefab? Are these "licensed" from the Foundation?

My dream is to buy the place and turn it into a residence. The coolest bach-pad in San Fran.

Really pathetic that they are disturbing this house in order to creat a parking lot. Grrr. School districts are responsible for a lot of such nonsense...as in the Irving Gill house that LA Unified t ...

The steep pitch roof reminds me of the Griggs House in Tacoma. I do wonder if the living room here wouldn't feel rather claustrophobic with tall walls, pitched roof, and few windows. And this design c ...

What was the prefabrication system of these homes? I take it the horizontal wall elements? Or were entire walls shipped to the site? It seems there was still a lot of custom building on site for thes ...

I assume that the Wright Erdman house we know is the only design he contributed. The Crestview design seems more spacially interesting to my eye. I don't know much about the Wright design other than i ...

Thanks for posting. I've always thought the Erdman prefab was the dullest home Wright every designed...if in fact he designed it. But there is a "Crestview" model in the brochure that seems ...

Another factor in the complexity of Wrights details is that the cost of skilled labor was very cheap through the 1930s. I don't see this as an excuse to make things overly complex, but you could have ...
