I did a Google search, and the only item for that individual is this real estate listing. So, I'm considering it clickbait and misinformation until I hear otherwise.

Discussions of format aside. the phpBB software that this forum runs on (albeit a 2005 version) still exists, and still is supported. At the very least, it should be possible to drag the board forward to the current version - and perhaps even retrieve key lost features (I'm thinking thread search an...

I toured it last month, right before it went on the market (at that point, the house had been emptied, supposedly for some sympathetic renovations - apparently, either a ruse or a change in plans) and can go through my shots to see if I have any that provide perspective. One thing we were told is th...

Are both the Blu-ray and the DVD provided on a CD ? I haven't had Blu-ray before; what hardware is employed ? I asked for and received the DVD. Resolution issues aside (noticed mostly in the otherwise excellent typography), this is a work of the sort that one hopes for and not often finds. Mr Barro...

Re: Book: '50 Lessons from FLW' - Aaron Betsky

What do you suppose are the odds Betsky has actually learned 50 lessons from Wright? :D

Would you think Bartlesville would be a Conference type venue or an Out&About venue? I suppose it would depend on how many Bartians in Bruce Goff houses would be open to letting architourists enter their homes. There are also Goff's works in Tulsa, Dewey, and Vinita to consider as well as Wright's ...

The author would have you believe this is a new item, but it's simply one more grant towards the ongoing ResA restoration. I believe this puts us near $2M in grants for Res A.

I'm guessing the purpose of the picture is to provide the tour hosts with something they can use to verify the person who arrives at their door is in fact who they say they are. If so, this is not unlike uber and many other services that provide a picture of the driver or service representative to t...

I don't want to speak for Andrew, but I've worked with him on enough related projects to say that the whole process of negotiating with the sites to agree on a set shooting opportunity is the biggest part of the challenge. He's far enough into the project now that it carries it's own cachet, and tha...

I was surprised to see this house on the market so soon. Those of us who toured the house with the Conservancy in 2017 met the young new owners who seemed practically giddy at the opportunity they had created for themselves. I hope there was no downturn of life that forced the sale.
