You will look far and wide to find a second-story stair hall like the one in this house. Household members could be expected to fight for time at the desk there, with its two-way views to the surrounding landscape and the horizons beyond, and communication with upstairs and downstairs spaces---a virtual ship's bridge . . .

Re The making of the Taliesin Drafting Stool: The photos SDR posted on 10/18, with FLW seated on it, indicates that there was a slope to the seat, while Wagner's version is dead flat.

I'm surprised that The New Yorker would associate itself with second-rate art and third-rate typography. But then, they've recently sold the inside front or back cover of the magazine to a forgettable painter who apparently wishes fame---or notoriety ?---and is willing to pay for it: https://www.mitchelljohnson.com

Mr Wagner's take on the Wright drafting stool was apparently based on a misunderstanding---identical to mine, initially---of the structure and appearance of the original. The only way to make the front-leg joinery viable, without the triangular gusset that unfortunately all but disappeared in the one photo he displayed as his inspiration, was to beef up the members, making an entirely different animal in the process.

The slope to the seat is peculiar to certain drafting-board seats and organ benches. The pitch counters the tendency of the user's hips to slide backward when leaning forward into his or her work. It would be most uncomfortable---well-nigh unusable---when employed as are most ordinary stools or seats.

Here's a better look. Is this our first visit to Ada ? https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/135- ... 0052_zpid/

What a gutsy interior. That floor ! What would you furnish this with ? Is there such a thing as brutalist furnishings ?
