Perhaps a new heading for Wright-era and Wright-influenced residential work is in order. Here's a Curbed page that includes ten names possibly worthy of notice -- including ready-made favorites Goff, Dow, the Dombars and Roger Lee.

The subject house by John S Chase carries a roof which might indicate a familiarity with East-coast architect Ulrich Franzen . . . if not with far-off master Le Corbusier.

Don't miss the link to the ten architects, early in the story. Only one house by each, but a starting point for further study . . . ?

Four of the architects noted, O'Neal Ford, Arthur T. Brown, Vladimir Ossipoff and Paul Hayden Kirk, are of especial interest.

I went to school with the daughter-in-law of Winston and Elizabeth (nee Scheu) Close. Take a look at the 8/25/2017 issue of Curbed for a photo of the Internationalist design of their own house in Minneapolis. Elizabeth was daughter of Gustav Scheu, who built a house by Adolph Loos.

I become more impressed by Curbed as time goes on. These pages a full of useful and interesting references. I did come across Wright's name, somewhere in the mix; I'll have to go back and find that.

One thing is missing: identification of place. What state are we in, I find myself asking repeatedly.
