"For that matter, the Harvey Mudd College campus in Claremont (Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, mid-50s) is all a takeoff on Storer or Lloyd-Jones"



Harvey Mudd was no doubt influenced by Wright but wasn't designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. It was by Edward Durell Stone and Earl Heitschmidt.

The nadir must be cheesy reality shows. "Beauty and the Geek" had a set with Ennis blocks. The current "Big Brother" house has a wall in the bedroom covered with a grille pattern designed by John Dekoven Hill for a spectacular house he did in Cincinnati in the 50s. Royalties should be paid.
