Re: Video: Tour of Taliesin - Spring Green, WI

I don't require a lot of room to be comfortable, but the Fabris Mansion is a bit extreme.
Could 2 persons sit in those two chairs without knocking knees?

Re: Tracing the designs of 4 basic chairs

Re: Making Wright Great Again ... The Next Decade

Few are less "digital" than I am, but I believe world culture is just entering what might be called "The Great Miasma," an extended era of dense fogginess, where the 12,000-year-old "Analog Age" (for lack of a more definitive retronym) overlaps the emerging "Digital Age," which has yet to be clearly...

Re: Vincent Scully lecture video about FLW 1914-1959

As long as SDR is niggling, Scully also has water running uphill from the Hollyhock moat to the circular pond. The flow was the other way, down 3' in level to the square pond on the west façade.
