Its interesting to consider the AD German Warehouse's ornamented frieze as a prototype for the textile block system. However, as my initial post stated, IMHO, it couldn't and shouldn't be seen that way only because it "looks like the textile block system." Otherwise, one might consider the friezes of the Heller or Dana houses prototypes. The textile block was all about an innovative material and method of construction. The ornamented aesthetics were a result of the system's opportunities, not integral to the system.
