my husband was teaching in Harvard, and we made it a point to always ask all
the masters students out to the house for two great parties a year, and to give
them a chance to see a modern house in operation, because they couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see
it anyplace else, except in the middle west, where houses by frank lloyd wright
had been built, or in california, where houses by mr
had been built
(... for many a fine year already, it might be said ...)
When he died, it seems, Gropius had let the greenery take over in Lincoln, in a way dear to Mr Wright's heart ?
Photos of the house in architecture compendiums published in the 'sixties seem to show the lights as they are now. So if a change was made it had to occur during the first two decades of the life of the house---I guess.
Anybody know what the red and orange discs applied to the glass "wainscot" are about ? And where did the drapes go ? Some photos seem to show an alternate window shading---apparently well-concealed at the ceiling.
