I'd suggest adding future announcements of Wright Legacy activity to this thread, so that readers will have a reference to previous announcements---and to the link(s). Best wishes !
It is also mentioned as a 1903 project for Oak Park in "In the Nature of Materials," where It is specified (as in Wasmuth) as a one-story house---yet the plans clearly show stairs going both up and down from the principal level . . .
The studio for Richard Bock, falls right after Unity Temple in Oak Park. T.0612. A wonderful project.
