This August Graycliff Conservancy will again host a Larkin Expo in a former Larkin Co. warehouse in Buffalo, N.Y. The expo will be centered at A 600,000 square foot warehouse now redeveloped into first class office space. A host of activities will be hosted including a showing of Ken Elwood's revised animation of the Larkin Administration Building. The L Co building is also the site of a museum in development interpreting the common history of Frank Lloyd Wright, Elbert Hubbard, and the Larkin Co.

Another reference to that pesky Larkin video..... so when is it going to be more wdely available? I'm sure it is quite an effort to have undertaken, but I have seen more than a few references to it the last few years.



I hope it isn't some special "treat" that will only be available if you are lucky enough to attend a conference or other "special" event.

You may need to wait a while to purchase the video as licensing from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has been a previous stumbling block.

So either the guy is driving a hard bargain or perhaps they've been too busy "inspiring" coasters and clocks at the expense of real art. At least that junk hasn't been clogging up 40 pages of eBay lately!

I'm curious where the licensing comes in. Is this out of a concern for the Foundation controlling the rights to all depictions of FLlW buildings? Or is there something from the Foundation's archives which is included in this Larkin animation that causes the licensing concern?

I believe the name Frank Lloyd Wright is copyrighted by the Foundation.

Unless the intention was to specifically include references to Wright as part of the project (pictures, drawings, etc), I find it hard to believe that intellectual rights and copyrights can be applied to the modeling of a demolished building they had no ownership of whatsoever.



Splash Screen: "The Larkin Building"...fade out, tour the building with dramatic music, slide show destruction photos (public domain), The End. What else do you need? Oh, yeh, white text on black background: "Designed by America's greatest architect, Frank Lincoln Wright".



Seems awful petty to me, but what else is new?
