I'd love to laugh at that comment Roderick, but I'd wager I own more unread books than you do. Embarassed

My understanding of this project, based on Jack Quinan's Buffalo book, is that the version that was build was the first of two. The second is, I think, a bit more refined. He mentions a full model tha ...

I got a copy of Jack Quinan's Frank Lloyd Wright's Buffalo Venture. I've read other of Quinan's books before, and thought well of them, but found this one particularly nice. Unfortunately for me, ther ...

I am always loathe to promote myself, but you'll just have to forgive me this once. Hopefully someday you will be able to experience Midway Gardens again. I haven't worked on it in years, but have sta ...
