I doubt anyone would argue that there is no need for additional space. But that isn't the problem with the proposal. H&S owns two old houses that could, combined at the back, provide all the ancil ...

It is hard to argue with the narcissist aspect of FLW's character, or his guru status, but I wonder if Boyle's book (which I have not bought) deals with FLW's subtle self-deprecating humor? It is hard ...

His abstractions were very interesting. I used to get Christmas cards from him featuring his drawings.

In addition to the comparison of early FLW and High Victorian, the neighboring house is connected historically to the design of one detail of the Wright Home. Built 8 years after the Wright House, the ...

The only downside is that it is not a very large house (2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1580 sf) and might be sold for the lot only, as a teardown! That would be tragic.

Keep in mind that a triangular shower stall has 3 unusable corners. Also, Dr. Ablin was a fairly large man who needed a lot of elbow room.

Think of it as more of a "Favorites List." When judging art of any kind, it's pointless to be adamant about who is included or excluded, and in which order. But a list of fine artists that p ...

If anything should be demolished, it should be the extension of the wall that wraps around Anna's house. That was not there when the H&S started the restoration, and was built only after they acqu ...

If things keeps going this way, there will no longer be any reason for people to play go ... or chess, or mahjong, or any other game. Just get two computers together, press 'play,' and sit back and wa ...

Fanciness should not in itself be a negative, but get a load of the balustrade! Oy!

When Westhope was built, it was in a semi-rural area. Two of the 4 'sticks' could be poles for power lines. The one on the steps up to the roof over the servant's quarters seems to have a rectangular ...
