It very much seems that "Wright Chat" has gone to hell by way of being politicized -- like 98% of the rest of American life. Too bad.

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 ...

Bravo, Rod.

My reason for thinking the Marin County building goes back to Louis Sullivan's Transportation Building of 1892-93 is supported by the fact that Wright's entrance arch for the V.C. Morris shop is large ...

Now that the Sturges house in Brentwood is for sale and in the news, it should be noted that Wright didn't get the cantilever right on that one, either.
Luckily, John Lautner saved the day by inserti ...
