Thanks for the clarification and the other references.

The find the presence of stairs in whatever form rather odd. Why bother? Why not just one level throughout?

I haven't seen many interior corridors in Wright's work before. I also found the steps up (and back down?) to the bedroom wing a bit unusual.

Wright always said his compositions weren't symmetrical but were balanced. Not sure how that is determined, but I always believe the Usonians have a taller compact mass (living room/kitchen/fireplace) ...

That a wall calendar. I'm after a spiral bound desk calendar...I've had one for years, but maybe they didn't print one this year.

Was there a FLW spiral bound engagement calendar this year? I don't see one on Amazon.

The key here is what was published prior to 1924. Things like the Warmth portfolio have been PD for a long time. I'm not sure Wright published much in 1924 that would now be fair game.

So we're getting another batch of public domain material on Wed. Everything from 1924 will be fair game. Does this mean all Wright drawing/writings etc from pre-1924 will be fair game (if they aren't ...

I prefer the term Progressive to Socialist and basically everything about modern society has been won by the progressive movement. But setting that debate aside. How to make Wright's work relevant? So ...

Maybe what is needed is the architectural equivalent of the Federalist Society which is dedicated to putting conservative justices on courts. We need a Wrightian society that encourages organic princ ...

The fact that a townhouse has become the dominant form is the problem. It is what it is, but it's sad that no one can build a nice low horizontal house anymore. Such home now are the million dollar s ...

There are three concerns in booming Seattle by old-time residents. One is that townhouses (now the dominant form of single family dwelling) are simply small and they see that smallness (and lack of ya ...

I think Wright gets a bad rap as an egotist. I just think he was correct on so many things that it's impossible to come across as anything but an egotist. Just because he had excellent creative skills ...

My book, I vainly hope, carries on the great tradition of political tracts in America. It grew out of research I've been doing for another book on the Seattle mid-century architect Paul Hayden Kirk. ...

My own book (http://bit.ly/DeathofSeattleBook) lays the blame at the virtuous cycle of economic activity. Industries like tech attract workers and they, in turn, attract more tech industries. So indu ...

Many see dense urban environments as a more sustainable mode of living, but the reality is that dense urban cores are always more expensive (NYC, San Fran) and always push lower-income out. So density ...
