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.

At the beginning of FLWBC, the defined, single purpose was to preserve, or (as Edgar Kauffman, Jr. put it) conserve FLW's built works, a narrowly defined task, but a full plate. It makes most of the e ...

TED is an interesting concept, but it uses the old-fashioned (and I would contend) outmoded method of the lecture. That is the element of FLWBC Conferences I believe tends to turn off a lot of younger ...

None of the "Bladerunner" interiors were shot in the house. The blocks in the movie were cast Fiberglas. Gus Brown made a doghouse out of a few of them. Reidy's description is spot on. There ...

SDR, I think you're reaching a bit. I've seen McBean, and there is no 'Japanoiserie' evident. It's All-American! The drive and carport are concrete now, but may have been gravel originally.

Something else to consider with respect to the inclusion of a fireplace of any kind in a FLW house: No other design element can pull a room together more easily and effectively than a fireplace, in us ...

Matt, which Gill house is that? I know of only one Gill design in the Los Angeles (West Hollywood, actually) area that was demolished, the Dodge House, and that was not done by LAUSD, but by Lytton S& ...

The enclosure offered by this house is comfo ...
