I cannot address digital architecture, but to me the process of hand-drawing a design, even one thoroughly composed in the mind ahead of time, is more than a record, it is an essential part of the des ...

DNR, I believe you are right. That stone-walled bedroom has a closet perpendicular to the wall, which doesn't exist in the original bedroom wing.

I bet the change from horizontal B&B to stone i ...

I didn't realize Call was so late. I pay little attention to dates. They vary from publication to publication.

SDR, the marquee was added to the Studio in 1911 for the remodeling into a residence f ...

Was Coonley first? Constructed, I would say yes ... without glancing. As an unbuilt element, the Call Building, though obviously different in its not being residential, is a strong precedent for the C ...

I assume that the encaustic method disappeared from FLW's interiors after decades of repainting, so it may be a surprise that he specified the process, but he did. I also assume it was not a cheap fin ...

That's true. Often the complexity of great music can sound chaotic upon first listening, only to fall into place after repeated exposure.

I have heard Bach's work all my life, but Boccherini sort o ...

This time I had no trouble getting in. Perhaps it's Yahoo! The exclamation mark after its name is appropriate, as is the lexical definition.

The photos make the paint job look blotchier than at Dan ...

Well, Meisolus, it looks like there may be fodder for a conspiracy after all. Now the first thing to ascertain: Is there a grassy knoll nearby?

Not so late, SDR. Westcott was built in 1904, the year of DD and Cheney. It also predates FLW's trips to Europe, so any influence from Wagner et alia would have been secondhand through publication.

I've given up on the conspiracy theory. I just thought that since Hoffa, JFK and Elvis have their running commentary, not to mention the ineffable Judge Crater, it might be interesting to have an arch ...

SDR, who said only the second fire was suspicious? The scope of the second conflagration is what suggests to me that someone decided to go the extra mile to make sure the whole place burned down. Why? ...

I did watch. What she did and how she presented it at TED are two different things. The FLWBC lectures are all about people doing this and that, but the form of the talks is stale, and new members wil ...

One fascinating historic photo of T-II is plate 34, page 58, the porch with its wicker furniture. Another view I have never seen in T-III is the studio alcove fireplace, plate 51, page 77.

This is original work. Selection of colors? Who knows?

As the pantry, the work-tops are not for preparation, but for serving. The kitchen has adequate accommodations for food preparation.
