Listeners who would rather listen to -- or ignore -- Latin, than German, can turn to Bach's Mass in B Minor, his notable foray into a text in that language.

In the twentieth century we paid homag ...

Good catch, HOJO. Closets separating bedrooms is good for acoustic privacy . . .

Wright's response to word that the house had burned, a telegram from Spring Green to Rose Pauson in San Francisco, is dated April 19, 1943.

It would be dandy to see the extra photos. Can someone i ...

The Arthur Mathews Usonian of 1950 has a wooden screen reminiscent of those seen in Futagawa's exterior photo of Arnold, above (though these screens

I imagine that we can agree that it's the product, the outcome of the process, that's more important than the method, to the success of a work of
art or science ? If one means works better, for an ...

I concur; while it is possible for what appears on the page to "push the designer around" -- perhaps a motive for the notion that the object should
be firmly in mind before pencil hits pap ...

All but the Call building made it into Wasmuth, in time to astound and delight the Europeans. Wright could rightly claim to have pioneered that vital branch of the modern movement -- and did.

These asymmetrical plans of the structure are a surprise -- to me, anyway. Note that the first plan is a split, showin ...

"Would this actually be the first structure where the cantilevered trellis occurs above windows?"

When did Wright add the marquee over the entrance to his Oak Park studio ?

Exciting. I love iron-spot brick.

A visually open and breezy scheme ? Interesting to see more drafting boards than computer screens in the studios . . .
