David - thanks for sharing this. My wife works in the building in the photo and the photo shows the back side of the building. Originally it was built as a dormitory. Maybe 1950's ? Of course Gammage is really the shining diamond in Tempe. ASU is going on a building tear. Many cranes on campus. 2018...

Heloise Crista

For those not on other FLW sites, sadly reporting that Fellowship member, Heloise Crista has passed away. Perhaps some on this site, better versed in Fellowship history can add to her background and story. The chain of those remaining in the Fellowship, with direct contact to FLW/OLW is becoming sho...

The event was filmed - video and my entire time at T-W, I've never heard Bruce referred to as anything other than Bruce or Bruce Pfeiffer. Introductions always included his middle name.

BBP Memorial

Today was a day of sadness and also celebration at T-W, with Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer's Memorial Service. Great honors from people like the author Kathryn Smith, a tearful remembrance from Indira Berndston, Vern Swabeck who talked about the archive work done by Jack Howe and David Wheatley (sp?) in the...

This is very sad news. Bruce was always very kind to me. The very archives itself were saved by him, to which he devoted his lifes work. Another strong foot solider, in the Cause of Organic Architecture, is gone. May his memory be a blessing, for all time. R.I.P.

How was Marcus Weston related to the Weston involved in the tragedy at Taliesin ? Would Wm " Will" Weston have been his father ? I'm kind of confused. Thanks.

I must add this : the photo in the first slide, is to the best of my knowledge, no where near T-West or its remaining 200 acres. This photo might be from the Carefree/Cave Creek area, much more to the west and north of T-W.

I believe this house was designed and/or built in 1979/1980 and was originally valued at $1.2 million. The design was by Charles Schiffner under the auspices of TAA. The house has had several owners over the years. I toured it in 1982 and for its time it was on the cutting edge, with computers that ...

Fir Tree House, Pecos, New Mexico

What a surprise. While watching a netflix series called "Longmire" I saw a brief glimpse of the exterior of the Fir Tree House. Later, in Series 4, in the episode called " Hector Lives ", several of the main characters were inside Fir Tree. WOW ! The interior still looks faithful to all other photos...

RIP Jack Larson. A true gentle man. We toured the Sturgis house, which was in very good condition, in 1992 with a group of volunteers from T- West. Mr. Larson took us on a personal tour of his house. I had a 35mm Minolta back then and when you tripped the shutter, it sounded like a gun shot. I was t...
