The foliage-style on the bottom harkens Marion, to me.

I'm reminded of her rendering of the DeRhodes house, was it? where she included MM tucked by the foliage.

I remember reading a book on Shaker architecture some years ago, and it struck me that Wright HAD to have liked some of its grammar. Simplistic elements -- no ornament or frill -- and full of light.

Insights I gained from this conversation include the idea that Wright's early house plans owe something to Richardson I could glean that he owed some of the colors Richardson used to his own work, and the entrance to the art gallery in San Francisco uses the same arch-style Richardson used in the G...

Can there just be one dedicated thread? I think it would lessen the need to create more when it's still in regards to the summit.

It could be the greenhouse addt. to the original plan.

Otherwise, speculation could be it's a guest-house.

I don't know the story behind it; and I can't recall where I got it -- best guess would be an auction site.

I don't have the Monographs, so I can't speculate.

Unbuilt Wright Plan

Ok, THIS TIME, this is a plan that truly isn't documented in Taschen. It's for the Alpaugh's -- I'm assuming the same client. There's a tiny elevation to the right with some weird shapes above. Odd roof...

Looks kosher, however, the stone is too smooth, i.e. it's missing the Wright-flavor of having pieces stick out here and there ala Fallingwater, Kentuck Knob, etc.

From what I recall, Wright condensed rooms like the kitchen and bathrooms to merely what was necessary because his larger focus was on the congregation spaces, i.e. living/dining rooms. It is a shame that some people focus too much on the kitchen and bathroom and essentially want it to be a room so ...
