Hoping to find other pictures of the tree in its setting, I went looking; this Twitter page has lots of other interesting images of the house:

The long, narrow rectangle, cut into 2 triangles, separating the house from the new structure is contrived. I don't like it.

Me too. From the air -- admittedly not the usual vantage -- it is immediately apparent, and annoying. It so clearly ignores Wright's layout and characteristic geometry -- and comes close to stepping on the footprint of the house.

It is pleasant, on another point, to see a continuous video sequence, after all of the truncated peeks at digital models the modelers seem to prefer -- as if quantity were preferable to quality ?
