Here's a locally-made video featuring a nice interview with Dr Christian.

Until Wright Chat's "Search" function is restored, a new thread is the only option for adding to a discussion of a particular subject.

The other half of this short five-house tour is here. Architects are unfortunately not identified, except for Wright and local architect Robert Smith. Is anything known about Smith ?

The pop-up TV was a surprise. Original, I suppose ?

Yes. That was a request from Dr. Christian that Wright accommodated.

The only architect other than Richard Smith and FLW is Evans Woollen III (1927-2016), who designed the Sondgeroth House, second on the second YouTube. Woollen studied under Philip Johnson, and was a proponent of the International Style.

The only Robert Smith, architect, I can find dates back to the 18th century.

One wonders if Stephen Smith, seen in the videos as interviewer, is related.

I like the brick and wood house. I usually do . . . like them.
