Interesting use of large brick (block?) in the Brandes house. (picture from dlvdevelopment.com)



Shallow rake, uniform mortar color and flush head joints.

In the video, they look like standard CMUs -- concrete masonry units -- in a special color. I wouldn't expect Wright to use these in combination with the Usonian board and sunk batten, because the vertical unit dimensions clash -- 8" for the CMU and 12-13" for the wood system. (The early Jacobs drawings show 12"; in subsequent houses this soon grows to 12" + and then to 13").

Heh. I see it didn't take me long to attempt a beachhead for my work, here at Wright Chat. I'd only been on the roster for a year and a half. I'd forgotten this thread.

That's a pretty fair representation of the portfolio. Most of those designs were made when I was in my fifties, in the 'nineties, though the work continues . . .


In for a penny, in for a pound; more here:

My oh my!
So many calories of brilliance I can't take it all in.
I love the trifecta -- brilliant design AND drawings AND realized objects..
Actually it's four things (would that be a "quadfecta" ?) -- the realized objects include both the finished thing (furniture, benches, decks, etc.) but also the other category of those scaled mock ups. I know you have some of those keeping you company in your living space. I hope you've retained them all. It would be great to see them all together in a dense collection.
Bravo.

Thank you. The brief definition of the work and its meaning, such as it is, found on page 3 post 3, stands. The tongue-in-cheek Furnitecture doctrine also applies, intermittently; not applicable where prohibited by law, etc etc.
