She also built with her own money the country club building at Gold Mountain. It is built from the Nakoma Country Club from 1924 (1928?) that FLW designed but was never built. She refused to make one deviation from the original plans and Taliesin oversaw all of it. It was awesome to walk around that magnificent structure!
I found a few links that show the building. I couldn't get their official site to load. Here are a few good pictures on this one. Audi site no less.
Here is one more that has a few

So one thing that I am wondering. Is there a list of the homes and buildings built after Wright died that are not cosidered "official" Wright buildings? I also realize there were homes built after he died that are still offical. That is due to the site, offical contact with Wright, working drawings, Taliesin assistance, etc ..Correct?
I didn't know about this Nakoma one built. And from the way it sounds, and looks, it is VERY much Wright. I realize it is not on the land where it was designed for, and Wright didn't over see it, BUT the Taliesin Architects did. I feel that this type of building warrents some type of recognition of being "official".
I know there is the Building in Hawaii based off of the home for Arthur Miller. And of course the Massaro project.
I guess without making this a big debate if these buildings are Wright's or not, The main thing I am looking for is just a list OF THESE buildings.
So I have Three here. Anyone know of others?
I think these should be included somewhere. As it has been said before, with a lot of horrible Architecture being built today, I personally would rather see an attempt at a FLW structure than a McMansion anyday. I know there are a lot of people that disagree, but their attempts (I feel) should be noted.
One more article I stumbled upon. It is with Tafel and Franklin Toker (author of Fallingwater Rising) talking briefly about Fallingwater etc.. Man that book is hard to read.
