Yes. Yet: almost every time we see a "by others" Wrightian home, we learn (or relearn) something about Wright. In this case, we are reminded that, just as a Wright building seldom has a neglected facade---a "Queen Anne front and a Maryanne back"---so too do we seldom find second-class rooms beyond or beneath the first-class ones. Every room in a Wright residence is made of (it isn't right to say "trimmed with") the same materials.

If there is "principle" to Wright's work, it is found in tangibles such as these---for me.
