the emil bach house is one of my favourites houses, ... is one of the smallest prairie houses and that makes so special, ... anyway, i considered that flw brights specially in the usonian designs.

A Usonian "vertical" design, Suntop ("The Ardmore Experiment"), 1938-39. One quadrant of this would make a nifty town house. . .
