Floor Plans for Lloyd's Taggart?

Post by Robert »

Shot in the dark, but does anyone have, or know where to find, floor plans for Lloyd's Taggart House?

I have the Weintraub book and it doesn't have them and there's nothing on the 'net. This seems to be some well-kept secret.

I have a collection of about 60 exterior and interior pictures, collected over a number of years, which help me to visualize about two-thirds of the layout, but not all of it.
I'm always looking for more pictures as well, especially interiors, in case someone has any that have never been posted anywhere.

Hmm. Well, that points up the need for a second and more inclusive monograph, one with plans, elevations, sections, and whatever else Lloyd might have left for us?

His archives are in the UCLA Library Special Collections.

I looked at some of his drawings at UCLA years go. What a great artist. I assume he did his own presentation drawings.

Eric had a lot of his father's work in a shack at the Malibu compound, which went up in flames in a fire in the 90s. I don't know what it included, but most likely treasures.

The presentation drawings are a treasure all by themselves. Lloyd perfected what I assume is a gouache technique for his renderings, which are remarkable for their colorful and romantic depiction of the buildings in a natural environment. The architect/landscape designer seeks a totality of environment in his work ?

Lloyd's drawings of A. D. German and the Glencoe Bridge are two magnificent works of art. I hope neither was in Eric's shed.

As they've been published in the references we have that were illustrated with material from the Wright archive, I suspect those drawings are now at the Avery.


Some more of Lloyd's work:

Lloyd's drawings of his own work differ from those done for his father's work. I wonder what the elder Wright thought of Lloyd's drawings?
