I recently purchased an interesting book by Ms. Gottlieb titled "Environment and Design in Housing" which was published in 1965. One section of the book (pp. 216-229) is devoted to an interesting "weekend house" that she designed for a gentleman in California. Does anyone know the name of this gentleman or project? I tried unsuccessfully to scan the photos of this design for posting.
In addition, an interesting design by Ms. Gottlieb and Jane Duncombe is illustrated on pg. 118.
It seems that Ms. Gottlieb was able to successfully adapt Mr. Wright's design principles into her own style. Has she retired from the profession?
