Here's a video from the owner of Samara -- not sure if he is still living. There's a nice showcase of how Wright hid a TV.

Speaking of Riverrock, here are some pictures of the yet-to-be-built project Wright proposed. There is a small difference, however: in the perspective of the project, the roof is flat through-out; in the model, the living/dining area has an angled roof. http://imageshack.us/a/img526/9841/penfieldmod...

To think, the All-Steel project was going to cover 100 houses and only 4 designs were made. There is one, never posted, near the end of The California Architecture of FLLW which, through reworking over the years, basically became the plan of the Wilson house.

jmcnally: buy The Seven Ages of FLLW; it's quite inexpensive and has a list of everything Wright designed and executed chronologically.

To SDR: yes, the perspective is the same; although, it's pretty faint.

In Taschen's Wright 43-59, the plan and perspective are shown.

In response to Reidy: the Principle and Form list does list if a building was executed, or not [by a marker of project next to it, much like what Storrer does].

In the back of FLW: Between Principle and Form, there is an index of every project [built and unbuilt] in chronological order.

I think the actual catalyst for Wright's departure wasn't the moonlighting: it was the loan Sullivan gave to Wright to build his Oak Park home. I recall reading somewhere that Sullivan was riding in a carriage and spotted some foundations being laid that he immediately identified as Wright's; becaus...

That first [Pratt] building is the only one that piques my interest. Even then, with some Wrightian elements, the plan is too symmetrical and doesn't seem to have the flow of a Wright plan. I suppose I expect too much.

There's a documentary called Restoring the Romanza [http://vimeo.com/2668344 full video] which shows some of the interior of Residence A and how disheveled it is -- or was -- during the restoration of Hollyhock. It also shows damage Hollyhock had prior to restoration [wood boards in the living room ...
