Wow. Maybe it's time to hold an "Anything" annual event, the naming of the year's "Least like FLLW" nominees, toward a (paper---or invisible) booby prize for the best entry. This turkey would surely be in the running ?

Anything with a roof will remind someone, somewhere, of a Wright design ? What is the defining attribute ? I would NEVER go so far as to suggest that a Realtor®™© would apply Wright's name to a property merely to catch the public's attention . . !

The opposite would be more interesting: Which "Anything" is closest to being FLW?

Turns out, the "Mushroom House" is by a FLW apprentice - John Covert Watson (arrived a Taliesin Jan. 1st, 1956)

‘That house’ on Lake Travis now for sale after Austin Weird Homes Tourp

The use of visible steel floor framing in a way that, coincidentally or not, evokes the traditional beamed overhead, is so very rare as to be virtually non-existent. The effect might be wasted in this chilly domestic environment, but it is worth remembering, in hopes that a more engaging and sympathetic example will someday appear ?

In the mean time, this photo set would benefit from a few evening shots, to play up the strip glazing hiding at the tops of some walls . . .

Beautiful house. I used to frequent that neighborhood back in the 60s when my friend from high school was a student at the nearby Luther Seminary. I remember it as a very handsome neighborhood.
