I did not know that Mills was a collaborator with Soleri - the Dome House - for example, until this thread.
If you didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know that, like me, then the appearance of the Farrar House would seem out of the blue and curious..
Soleri makes it understandable.
It makes the impressions in the concrete frame at Wild Bird understandable too.
Far A Way
I learned somethings from it.
Among these is Robinson Jeffers who, regrettably, I'd never heard of before.
Anyway, looks like he's the soul of Carmel:
great commission was for D L James, a stone house at cliff's edge, built the same year as Tor house.

Randell Makinson's index (1977) does not contain the name Robinson Jeffers; interaction between the two men, if any, will be described by others. Makinson
writes that Greene's move north may have been "partially motivated by a desire to delve into the profundities of Buddhist philosophy." His intention was to write ...
The Mills-Soleri Dome House, which I believe was their only collaboration, does not necessarily prove this, but their subsequent accomplishments on their own strongly suggest that would have been their relationship, had they continued as partners.
Those happy collaborations were absent in the George Grant Elmslie - Louis Henry Sullivan partnership, in which neither was adept (where residential architecture was concerned) with the big picture, the overall logic of the plan, but were both focused on the rich details. Strip the elegant details from Babson, Bradley and (projects) Bradley #1 and Bennett, and you don't have much left.
Very cool house.
Got a new area to pursue now.
Thank you very much.
...I know nothing about Jeffers beyond what I've been able to glimpse from The Tor House site and my Wiki search.
... I agree the US needed to be all in against the Axis Powers. Yet, my study, has led to the conclusion that Hiroshima
and Nagasaki were not humane decisions to reduce further casualties but brutal, obscene measures
whose primary purpose was to "speak" to the USSR.
