Some designs model better than others. A one-story Usonian design at a small scale isn't much of a model...little better than looking at a plan drawing. Other designs or parts of projects work well in ...

What material was your model made of? Doesn't look like foam core or museum board.

Any attempt to model masonry accurately would be futile in my opinion...and aburdly expensive. It was done well fo ...

I'm pretty sure only the drawings are protected by copyright law. But I'll be sure to check all of that out.

Most of my model making has been of unbuilt projects like the original Booth House. It's the best way to understand the design. Of course, many today would just create a CAD model, but there may be an ...

Representing the differences is important. I've used foam core to represent stucco or concrete surface and at certain scales the grain of wood can convey the roughness of masonry. I think the reason ...

I'm thinking that the scale/level of detail would be worked out for each customer based on their preferences and budget. The models should be on a MDF base with layers of cork to represent the topogra ...

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 f ...

Really wish I'd been able to talk to the apprentice who worked in Chandigar...Ted Bower if I recall the name right.

Thanks. If that's the case I'm a bit surprised the FLW Foundation lets them use the FLW name.

What's the history of the Trust. They own the home/studio and Robie...right? But other than that there is no connection to the FLW Foundation at all...right?

I wonder if the Trust just doesn't want to bother with the upkeep of the older homes. Can't be cheap keeping them in working order, and they offer little aside from the context.

Where I think Wright and Picasso are comparable is the number of times they reinvented their artistic vocabulary. Wright had three or four dominate types from Prairie to Usonian. Picasso went from pic ...

I wonder how many shins have been bruised in collisions with that cantilevered planter. Sort of taking inspiration from the Huntington Hartford project.

I've never heard of this guy before. Wonderful drawings. You're referring to "lots" is this from an auction or just the archive the OP noted?

We should all be so lucky to live in a Wright house long enough to discern it's faults. Of the many I've been in, my chief complaint would be narrow stairs and corridors, but better to scrimp on pass ...
