I would have been pleased to see the architect begin with #2 and 3 types, and leave out Mr and Mrs Average Homebuyer from the start. Could it have been
Erdman who led Mr Wright in the direction of mass-market design ?

I suppose the sales of the respective types might give the lie to that suggestion. But the #2 is downright ungainly, in most images I've seen, while the untried
#3 could have had real appeal for the modernist segment of the market -- which clearly was the apple of Mr Wright's eye from the beginning, in 1935. I
realize the #3 is essentially a chopped-and-channeled #2, with the same compositional ingredients -- but Wright had learned long ago that lower was better,
hadn't he ?
