I met Aitken in '89. He was along with Katharine Jacobs and his wife, Elizabeth, when we visited Sturges. He ran around looking at and photographing the effects of sunlight on the house. Larson and Br ...

That's my bank. While it has a certain MCM charm about the exterior, the interior is rather glum. Very brown. Umber. It would be better to leave things as they are, but it seems to be a fait accompli. ...

Including a floor plan in real estate ads is very helpful, especially for a house that includes circles. Though there is no special plan shown, notice that there are plan and elevation drawings of the ...

The underside of the landings that protrude out from the block of the building are slightly canted, but the landings are dead flat.

Notice on the drawing that the ramps at the top end are scribbled out, as if FLW was not satisfied. He then altered the entire system to what is shown in plan, with those angled steps that are a bit a ...

To call the Affleck Project a tortured Jester would be generous. It may well have been the work of Howe, as you suggest, SDR, but with all those circles and inverted lunettes, I would favor Wes for th ...

Dana actually is of the type, but it consists of the living room, flanked by the two porches. Stretching it a bit, but it counts.

Another house that fits the type, which was recently listed as bein ...

The Dowling plan does go back, indeed, but Rapson is a bridge too far. While Ellwood is a definite 'yes', neither Koenig nor Walker would fit into that category of ultimate simplicity.

The Burns video was as respectable as Brendan Gill's "Many Masks." Burns obviously did not know anything about architecture (or jazz, for that matter), so he got a list of so-called experts ...

It would be easier to buy the whole thing, move the original house to a new lot and add something appropriate to the large wing to finish it off. It is not all that bad on its own. That would be the o ...

Perhaps I am misreading, but I just noticed that the 3 portfolios issued from 1977 to 1982 sold for $1,500.
