>Attendees should know that high temperatures during the week will be in the high 80's and the low 90's, so bring summer clothes. It can get down to 70 overnight ... but afternoons should be plenty warm. At the moment we have having near record temperatures ... that is, close to 95.

Outstanding - long pants are so overrated ... :-)

For future events, I proposed to the Conservancy Board that they try to find ways to structure conferences around something other than the house tours, so sites like Allen-Lambe, Geo. Lewis, Price Tower, Charnley (MS) and Rosenbaum ... publicly accessible buildings which have few or no other FLW sites within reach ... could be taken advantage of. Other architects' work, interesting lectures, subjects related to, but beyond architecture ... all sorts of things could be done so we could take advantage of remarkable buildings that are isolated by geography. The idea has been well-received. 2014 will be the third time at T-West; repeats are becoming inevitable, which means attendees will start to drop away. Innovation is necessary.

In the meantime, have a fun, sweltering time in Scottsdale.

The Spring Conference will be just two houses.
Isn't your idea what they plan for the "Mini Conferences?"

Tanya and I will be there and anxiously anticipate our stay at the Biltmore. Will anyone else from the February tour of L.A. be there? I just finished assembling our hefty photo album and would be pleased to share it (although our most treasured pictures show our Chihuahuas running around the beach at Carmel Bay below Walker.)

I hope those Wright Chatters who are attending the Conference will keep those of us who will not be attending advised of the "goings on" in Phoenix.

conference updates

Eric O'Malley, co-founder of www.prairiemod.com, is posting nightly updates of the day's events on his site. The Biltmore is simply fabulous, they closed Taliesin West to the public so we had the run of the place all afternoon. Everyone has been basking in a Wrightian glow! Tomorrow we visit some of the private residences so it'll just get better.

Great to hear what is going on. Are any of Will Bruder's building included on the tours?

Well, that was a pretty damned impressive four days ... I'm going to have a Wright hangover for at least a week.
