The movement through the galleries and smaller rooms is a bit disorienting...but I suspect that is due to the difficulty in lighting the windowless spaces, the limited cone of vision of the viewer, and the sameness of the wood grain on most surfaces.
The walk-up and fly over are very revealing...thanks for the effort.
Now, more than ever, I am convinced the Pauson house was a masterpiece; to me, it's Wright's best desert project.
and skillfully chosen; the initial approach is exactly what one would have hoped for -- though the "back way" into the living room, rather than the
formal path next to the chimney, is a surprise, perhaps. (Makes us feel like one of the family, rather than a guest -- that's good !). The ending,
back where the video started, is the perfect choice. Beautifully done.
I note that, in the initial turn into the dining space, the "lights" come on briefly -- helpful in delineating form, as noted above. So maybe it's
I approve (I think) of stone paving in the upstairs baths. The kitchen looks good too. Thanks again for "tying the bow" on this job.

Yes, I had also been thinking of two I'd seen . . . FOUND THEM! Are these the ones?SDR wrote:I was hoping to add the two color photos I have seen of the house but couldn't find them.SDR
From the January 1942 issue of Harper's Bazaar:Roderick Grant wrote:SDR, John Geiger took some color photos of Pauson, which he will eventually post, once his site is up. I also saw a color photo by a fashion photographer of model Diana Vreeland standing at the south terrace where the upper level balcony starts less than 6 feet above the terrace floor; FLW playing tricks with scale again ... his version of trompe l'oeil. The house must have drawn people quickly, considering the brief time between the introduction of color film and the fire that destroyed Pauson.

The scale issue that Mr Grant mentions is very apparent, isn't it. These could almost be Hollywood (or New York) studio sets, couldn't they ?
But these aren't the ones I was thinking of ! The ones I've seen (like the vast majority of Wright photos) contain no human figures. So, that 's four
color photos identified so far. (It's hard to believe that the photo sessions that produced the fashion photos here, wouldn't have recorded additional
negatives as well -- perhaps never published or even printed ?)
Thanks for the research -- SDR
