There is a house by a former apprentice (whose name I cannot recall; Geiger knew him) high in the Rockies on the edge of a precipice overlooking spectacular mountain peaks. The plan is rather simple, rectilinear. A view window wall slices through the house at an oblique angle to the grid of the plan, inches from the edge of the mountain, made of floor-to-ceiling slabs of butt-jointed glass ... not a whisper of framing. For those of us who are not fond of heights, it would be a scream-inducing experience to get to within 4 feet of it.
(Remember Ann Robinson in "The War of the Worlds" (1953)? She said practically nothing, just screamed throughout the picture.)
