When I visited the Allen house in Wichita, one of the upstairs bedrooms was filled with a mini-exhibition on Hoult (particularly claiming pride in Wichita being the intended location for the first usonian). The pace of the tour didn't really leave enough time to examine their materials in depth, how...

Here's an option, from Taliesin, that no one has mentioned yet. It solves the difficulty of the mitering, but not, I'm afraid, the energy efficiency issues.

And it draws the eye up and away from the firebox and the mantle, which is usually such a visual anchor.

When asked by the then owner what he was thinking, maybe Wright had trouble responding because all he could think was, "Man, what was I thinking?"

Does that display case above the fireplace look a little, well, goofy to anyone else?

Roderick, You didn't care for Keland? I disagree--I found it quite magical. I don't know what it was like prior to the addition, but I love the second story room open to the room below, love the fireplace (even if it's initially disconcerting to see that material in a Wright room--Granite or marble,...

I was on that 2008 tour--what a great selection of homes, btw--and recently saw Public Enemies. I was watching the whole time for the bank, and think you get a couple of brief glimpses. One shot in particular seems to show one of the arched stained glass windows at either end of the lobby. But the v...

SDR--to echo Jeff, the copper mural is first floor. The area currently serves as a kind of lobby where tours gather. If you enter the "public" entrance (currently the only working entrance) and walk forward, the gallery lobby and copper mural/built-in couch are a left turn through a set of doors, el...

SDR--Thanks as always for the photographs. You are an essential resource for this board. I have a question about the mural from the first floor of the Price Tower. That's the mural in the reception space that sits in front of the entrance to the (current) gallery space, is that right? On our recent ...

Taliesin Timeline

Found this while scooting around online. A PDF of an exhibition that was installed at Taliesin in 2007, designed by Taliesin-trained artist Val M. Cox, from an idea by Susan Jacobs Lockhart and another gentleman. http://www.valmcox.com/vmc/media/general/42011-taliesin%20timeline/taliesin%20timeline-...

Regarding the terrace--this is the story I heard: Wright wanted a cantilever, soaring out beyond the hill; Prices didn't trust it, insisted on the supports; the old man relented, but insisted on the fountain (perhaps to draw attention from the poles?). I'd like to see it with the fountain in full fo...

is that green paint on the exterior trim in this photo? http://www.naturalhomemagazine.com/uploadedImages/articles/issues/2009-07-01/NH-JA09-15.jpg The exterior trim of the Little Living Room at the MET is also painted green. I wondered about that when I saw it, and now I'm wondering even more. Is t...
