Community Christian Church

Curtis Besinger mentioned that FLLW wiped his hands from the project in his book, so I knew it wasn't really "Wright". Still, I keep trying to have an open mind about it all--I've been known to be proved wrong before. Thankfully, my SO can still stand my dragging repros of drawings out and talking a...

Kraus home, Wainwright tomb, etc.

This is a nice visual treat. I think your photos of the Kraus home are better than the website for them. That back patio?/parking? area is really surprising. Whoa. And your photos of the Wainwright tomb are wonderful, with those little details. The Community Christian Church though does nothing for ...

Beth Shalom

Fantastic photo, thanks for posting it. I just got the normal, frontal view the one time I happened by it (on a Sunday--I stupidly thought that a synagogue would be open on that day of the week--so I just got the outside).

Heurtley House on-line

There are some photos of the Heurtley House on-line right now (watch out for pop-ups). It looks like the main floor, the living room, the bathroom, a dining room, the kitchen, and a few bedrooms.

It's fun to see everyone's responses; here's one architect for the title of "2nd best" that we've forgotten, I think: Sullivan (depending on where you come down on the "he was a designer, not an architect" argument, I guess); his use of light seemed esp. informative in the creation of space. Althoug...

Reminds me of something someone said to me about FLLW and his buildings: they would make beautiful ruins.

I have some color slides of Taliesin in Wisconsin I took in 1957 or 1958.
Wow. That makes me so happy I can't even describe it.



Can I e-mail you about getting scans? This would be for restoration and research purposes.

drooling question for Pyron

While Wright was aliveI photographed many opf his floor plans and perspecive drawings, as well as most of his later houses in the Midwest.
You didn't happen to photograph Taliesin in, say, 1958 did you? If so, could I write you and find out more?

Expressionist architecture

In Lloyd Wright's work, I'm thinking of the forms rather than the underlying social repercussions of Expressionist Architecture. There is a monumentality to Lloyd Wright's early work that struck me when I first saw Lloyd Wright: The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Jr. It's different from his fat...

Expressionist architecture

Dear Roderick Grant: I'm curious as to why you wrote this: the expressionistic trend of his architecture in the 'teens (including German, Bogk and Bach) What do you think makes these buildings expressionist? I always had a sense that expressionist architecture used more dynamism and monumentality th...
