us that Wright later called this his "first Usonian house." And, we view the exterior of the bedroom stack at the rear of the house, with continuous vertical
openings that might harken forward to the Fallingwater "tower" of spaces.
I'll leave the insidious suggestion of darkness and death in the Los Angeles houses to others . . .
Having again seen the Los Angeles houses together, I can repeat that my favorites are Storer and Freeman, the former most of all. I first read of the architect's
disappointment with Storer in Sweeney's "Wright in Hollywood," and I continue to be, in turn disappointed by that reaction.
My favorite block pattern, however, is Millard.
Favorite images of the two houses:

For me Ennis lacks their clarity of plan, but of course it's got drama, even grandeur ?
The way the columned walls of the living block are arranged as 16" columns and 32" windows, does not invite the view much at all.
Yet both are splendid.
It was interesting to hear the opinion expressed that a possible scenario might include the demise of a building once past its natural lifetime. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve heard something of this sort already, in connection with Freeman ... and the rejoinder that a complete recreation would be preferable to giving up altogether ? Now about funding ...
