Speaking of bathrooms, anyone see the one at Taliesin West a few issues back in the Quarterly?



The article was about the recent renovations, so I assumed the bathroom shown was such. It is really wild in stainless steel. Wright was either a lot hipper than I ever imagined, or it's a modern addition, only added for "style".



Also, can someone please tell me with certainty if AC was added at TW before or after Wrights death? I can see him both resisting it to the end, or accomodating those who were maybe getting a little tired of camping. Did he himself start adding glass surfaces with or w/o AC as additional texture? or only as enclosures for AC?

Regarding Taliesin West, the complex was never intended for year round use, but as it became headquarters for archives, Architects, etc... the need for it's current poor air conditioning was a reality. So, indeed that is a post FLLW addition.

The board and batten aluminum bathroom was in fact from the days of Mr. Wrights era, and the well researched renovation/restoration by Fellow Arnold Roy is a treat to examine.
