Wright was clearly off-course with his Usonian Automatic theme. I wouldn't ...

Speculation in Kansas City is that the buyer, who promises to be a diligent caretaker of the house, will use it as a high-priced Air B&B--unless he already planned to move from Nebraska to Kansas ...

The Sondern-Adler house in Kansas City, next door to Thomas Hart Benton's house, sold at auction yesterday to an unidentified Nebraska buyer for a bid of $920,000 plus the auction house commission of ...

The original color of the Community Church was pink. After a rainfall, the building looked like it had a skin disease, all splotchy. Eventually, a painting contractor named Jerome Friedson was hired t ...

Puff, indeed.

This house was bequeathed to the Nelson-Atkins Museum by a previous owner, Richard Stern. The museum, befuddled as are most museums, couldn't figure out what to do with the bequest, ...

Prof. Hitchcock was not the kind of man who would cede editorial control to anyone. He worked with Wright amiably, not realizing that Wright, behind his back, made fun of him and Philip Johnson for be ...

Given the climate in the Chicago area, it looks to me like this house is vastly underserved by radiators and by the measly A/C inserted in the wall of the living room. Also poorly oriented, if the fr ...

The purpose of restaurants being deliberately loud is to convince customers that this is where lively people go, where the "action" is, etc.

Just another aspect of all the noise that now ...

This is a beauty, and very nicely priced. A better-looking house than many of the FLlW houses so reverently discussed in Wright Chat.

The old boy is always good for a few chuckles. Such as saying he can't imagine how his "Butterfly" bridge would ever entail any maintenance costs, and would last forever. What a salesman! A ...

The art glass design proportions and that odd display cabinet above the fireplace noted by Rod Grant have a certain clumsiness that make me think of Marion Mahony, not FLlW. She didn't get things qui ...
