This project has received too little attention. It contains some of Lloyd's best design work. See the Alan Weintraub book, pp146-153.

Weintraub's photos capture incidents in the scheme; the best overview photos, rough and (so far) small but in color and showing the original condition, are found in the booklet linked above. Lloyd's widely-spaced structural bents, which establish the scale of the thing, are the master stroke. The debt to T West is obvious, but Lloyd doesn't lean hard on his father---ever. The desert masonry is well-wrought.
