Makes me think of a favorite FLLW quote from when he visited a house designed by a former apprentice who was not in his good graces: "looks like a good place for artificial insemination" Very sterile, very cold, exactly the kind of architecture FLLW abhored.

I think Laura Linney would be good as Catherine - How about Julianne Moore for Mamah? I still think Ralph Fiennes would be the best choice for FLLW. Probably all just conjecture though as this will probably go the same way as the plans to make Fallingwater Rising into a movie.

My vote is for Ralph Fiennes. One of the finest and most underrated actors, highly intelligent, right body size, shape of face close enough and Hollywood can do the rest. My only question would be could he get the voice right?

This is truly depressing - I had the pleasure of touring this house last year and it was by far my favorite of the tour - most livable. The owners had done a great job so far in restoring it. A real loss to the architectural community!

The purpose of this webpage is to share information related to FLLW - not political blogging. Please keep it at that!

Thank you for that post - it was a real treat to watch. In Ken Burns documentary he shows several clips of FLLW as a TV guest - it would be interesting to see more of these.

Best FLLW tours?

The recent post about the Dana house's shaky future has spurred me to consider making an improptu road trip to see it while I can. I am wondering how others who have toured the Dana house think of the tour in terms of overall quality. I am also curious to those who have toured many FLLW's homes/buil...

Wright's AIA Speach

I received Brandoch Peters DVD as a birthday present recently. Brandoch refers to FLLW's AIA speach at one point and makes the comment that it can be heard on National Public Radio from time to time. I am wondering if anyone knows of a weblink to this? I searched with no luck.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Mason City event this weekend. The Melson, Rule and Blythe house were great. It was a real treat to see the inside of the hotel but for me the highlight was the Yelland House by Drummond. The most livable of all the homes and quite affordable when it sold in 2004. Also in ve...

Thanks SDR for posting these - I had never heard of Mr Caldwell. As the son of a master stone mason I particularly appreciate the stone residences!

The first usonian

I just finished watching "Portrait of an Artist" that R. Grant recommended so highly. I was quite suprised to hear La Miniatura referred to as the first usonian house. I have never heard or seen this anywhere before. Jacobs 1 is often mentioned as the first and I have always thought of the Wiley hou...

Love the exterior but the interior - yuck! It will take a lot of $$ to redo the inside - still $210,000 doesn't sound like a bad price. Actually it made me feel a little better about my own renovation project - a house that was owned by someone who must have watched too many of those terrible do it ...
