OAD is and continues to amaze, tantalize and delight with superb production and scholarship, outshining and out pacing any other publication - either FLW related or architecturally related to the organic principles.

This is quite interesting. Since my last visit to the property, during the siege by the jerk asses who previously held ownership, I can report that this film shows extensive cleaning and "sprucing" up to both the interior, exterior and landscape. This appears to include the John Howe designed guest ...

I guess the best to be said about this vignette is that in this country we do have freedom of expression, even if it presents itself as incorrect, incompetent, uninformed and unintelligent.

I have been buying from J B Muns for approximately 20 years and can give them the highest possible recommendation. Their service is excellent. Pricing fair and honest. Their reputation is without question.

Greetings All and thanks for the information and comments. So glad I visited Corbin/WSU. You enter the space low, like Johnson Wax. A water feature separates the two main buildings, which are mirror images of each other. Low built in seating in the common areas. Some original tables still in use. Wh...

Paul & SDR : I am in total agreement. What's with the re-naming ? Marketing mumbo-jumbo. I've been fortunate to tour here 3 times in the last 20 years. Not one of my favorites. Skip the wine and cheese and just sit and take in the beautiful Gene Massilink screens in the exterior pavilion. That alone...

New lawn has been planted. He says the structure has been cleaned inside and out and that the preparat...

Taliesin West - Front Page

Since I am only 1 of 5 people on my block that still get a morning newspaper I thought I would report a nice article, front page above and below the fold, about the restoration project to be undertaken at T-W. Major attention to roofs, electrical and plumbing infrastructure. Bid awarded to Harboe Ar...

thanks for posting. This is the first time I have seen a model of Midway Gardens. The single photos certainly do not do justice to it.
