Gone Girl

Post by Reidy »

Does anyone here know where they shot lake house scenes in this movie? It's a handsome, very upscale contemporary house with a Wrightian look to it, apparently not just a set.

It looks like an E. Fay Jones House.

A Facebook posting (https://www.facebook.com/EFayJonesGuideBook) suggests Maurice Jennings / David McKee. I think it's the Southeast Missouri Residence here: http://www.mauricejennings.com/MJA/Resi ... ences.html.

Thank you for the leads.

It all goes back to Wright, doesn't it. Jennings + McKee are the successor firm to Fay Jones's practice ?

Nice looking house. There's a bit more steel -- and a bit less fuss ? -- in the detailing. A cruciform plan ? The programmatic description makes sense . . .

From what I undestand, as of now Jennings and his son are the successors to Jones' practice. McKee has moved on.

A definition of Organic architecture appears on the Jennings + Jennings page:

"... the principles of Organic Architecture. These principles include a harmony between the building and its natural surroundings, a close relationship
of the individual elements of a building to each other, a generous use of natural light, and the honest expression of materials."

I'd accept that list with pleasure: clear and concise, with only four points to argue over. I continue to believe that these desiderata could and perhaps
should to be applied to any building by any architect, leaving "Organic" to mean, in practice, Wright-like building.
