Interesting. Here Wright gives us the orthodox three-story gable-roofed format for the cross-bay of his design, while he pulls the hat down over the ears (as it were) for the longitudinal volume.

Compare to Moore I and II, or Foster . . .for instance ?

William Morris or not, I still hate wall paper, and would strip it from this house if I had the chance.
Hello, Roderick. I'm the author of that article on the Clark house in Heinz's FLW Newsletter. If you'd like to discuss the matter some more, please do let me know. Thank you.
