SI's Taliesin-1911 (actually more 1912!) is finally available animated. Too easy to quibble over the accuracy of the masonry and other details, just wonderful that its been done! Love the breeze wafting through the treetops and into the interiors... great job on Wright's most "unknown" masterpiece.

Skyline Ink has done some wonderful re-creations of unbuilt Bruce Goff buildings.

The FLWBC should hire them to do one unbuilt Wright building every year.

Paul:
A very interesting idea! I might suggest given the mission of promoting the preservation, it may be more appropriate to create videos of Wright’s works lost to demolition. Husser, Harlan, Midway Gardens, Imperial Hotel, etc.

Another possiblity would be to show the buildings as designed but not built. Ennis would take well to such a treatment. Freeman with its circular terrace. Tomek with its walled garden.

Creation of the unbuilt designs would be either very sketchy if the makers stuck to what they could document, or very conjectural if they didn't.

Then there is Angster, one of the most mysterious of built/demolished buildings.

Preservation should include the preservation of Wright's ideas (as recorded in his unbuilt plans) as well as his buildings. That is why this idea fits into the MISSION of the FLWBC.

A representative from Skyline told me several years ago that they could digitally recreate a building for around $5K.

I believe that both categories -- unbuilt (but complete in design), and built/demolished -- deserve attention. Thus, I would propose a 1:1 ratio of realization; one of each, in turn.

Of course, there are many more unbuilt designs that buildings no longer extant, but there would be choices to be made in any event. As some will be more interested in one category, and some the other, we can attempt to please both camps equally -- a "win-win" ?

The FLWBC, from my reading of the organization's mission statement and actions, is focused on education about, advocacy for, and preservation of Wright's built work.
While I wholeheartedly agree faithful CGI constructions of unbuilt Wright designs (where sufficient design and spec data are present to prevent excessive conjecture) is a valuable tool to understanding Wright's work and genius, it may not necessarily be the FLWBC's place to undertake this. I would think the present holders of the Wright Archive at Columbia and MoMA might be better able to facilitate this, particularly if it involved students at Columbia and exhibitions at MoMA.

That makes sense. The distinction between the two categories of work, and all ensuing ramifications, should be recognized at every stage.
