Combined 466 pages, hopefully there are some unseen plans/perspectives I've not yet laid eyes upon. His period between Prairie and Usonian were his most-experimental; so, it should be interesting.

Even in Wright's most extravagant and expensive designs, he never made a huge kitchen, bath or even bedroom. Wasn't this moreso to do with his design philosophy of emphasizing the places of congregation [living/dining room] and that those areas [bath/kitchen/bed] were considered more functional spa...
