There's a great deal more than the title suggests, here . . . a feast for any Wright-lover.

To some, I suppose the Home & Studio looks like a disorderly arrangement, but a look from above shows the true level of clarity of design from the modest cottage to the sprawling complex. An appreciation of the 1890s work cannot be had without a comparison to H&S, which is much more sophisticated than any of the other of his early work. It's hard to reconcile missteps like Goan, Furbeck & Furbeck, Geo. Smith with H&S.

I wonder about the landscaping of the front lawn. At 1:04 is an glimpse of it, showing a standard grass lawn with some pretty blue blossoms. I had always imagined the entire area covered with native prairie grasses and flowers. Is what is there an actual recreation?
