The one house in this article that is new to me is the Frank House. Is anyone aware of this design, or has it slipped through the cracks?
Pics of the house and its decorative elements:

When I told her about this Frank house by Goff she got very excited to see photos of those glazed bricks... A whole house made of the stuff !!!
Up close, the finish of the pottery is very subtle and lovely. I imagine a wall of bricks with this finish would be very nice in person.

"Of course, I was influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright in my early years. However, I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to carry on his work. Wright asked me if I would come to Taliesin, before he established the fellowship, and become his Ã¢â‚¬Å“right-
hand man.Ã¢â‚¬Â� I was very busy at the time in Tulsa and was to be a partner in the firm I had apprenticed. I declined the offer then and two other times also.
On the third time, I explained: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mr. Wright, I regard you highly and know people who have worked with you. You are too big a man for me to be close to, and I need to be away from you in order to keep the right perspective.
I hope we can continue to be friends.Ã¢â‚¬Â� Wright was silent for a long time. Then he put his arms around me and gave me a big hug and said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Bruce, I wish others knew me like you do.Ã¢â‚¬Â� He never asked me to join him again."
Another revelation for me is the news that Goff was influenced by music . . .
If I remember correctly his favorite composer was Claude Debussy.SDR wrote:Another revelation for me is the news that Goff was influenced by music . . .
I recommend the book "Goff on Goff." It is a series of transcriptions of his
lectures to his students at Univ of Oklahoma by a fellow architecture professor, Phillip Welch.

Sidenote: Phil tried several times to become a FLW apprentice, but he had a family with a couple of kids and Wright didn't see that a good fit. He did help FLW on the Walker House while he was a prof in California.
I thought we had a way of keeping these spammers and bots off this site! Especially if they signed up on the day they posted.
