Thank you for the information. You've given me a reason to need to go to DC again!

Does anyone know what the function of the exposed I-beams shown in one of the pictures of the article on the Lewis house is? Is this perhaps where the carport used to be before disintegrating and thus exposing the steel?

The Tallahassee Trust for Historic Preservation has a pamphlet on the Lewis House. On the left side of the page there's a pdf entitled, "SpringHouse". There are some vintage photos showing the still standing carport as well as many photos revealing the sad, sad state of affairs today. According to their January 2012 newsletter, Clifton Lewis is still living in her house.

It looks so sad inside. I wonder what will happen to it down the road.... I hope someone comes in and restores this home to the former glory it once had. Sad to it in that state.

Absolutely... Left unrestored it will eventually decay and have the same presence as something like the Pauson house. Even architectural ruins reveal their beauty...

The good news is that it can always be restored. This is right up there with Outside In's Ross house, and look at how that is coming along!

Okay. So the remaining question is . . .

Who is Fran Lloyd Wright ?

To be perfectly frank, it was a typographic error on my part.
