A souvenir, something made for a gift shop ? One wonders when, where, and by (or for) whom ...

Which one is it? The monochrome or colored? What happened to the trellis on the uphill side of the house?

I would buy it, but I already have a gold, bejeweled model of Mt. Rushmore, which is quite enough.

Though you may be inclined to do so, don't mute this video. The angry music is perfect for this vast, sterile mess of a house. I can imagine the cast of "Game of Thrones" settling in comfortably.

Both these houses derive their exterior composure---the unity of form, the consistency of detail---from Wright's example, and this gives them whatever quality they possess as architecture.

And one has to admire, in the La Cañada example, the integration of second-floor terraces into the hipped roofs of the main level. It surprises me that Mr Wright seems never to have considered this possibility, inherent in his chosen roof form ?

The hip roofs, truncated to allow for second story terraces, is one detail that I find extremely unattractive. I am glad FLW didn't fall into that trap.

Interesting house, but there is no focus. It's a collage of bits and pieces, without any control.

Have to agree. A second level terrace similarly concealed between two fully ridged single floor wings would be fine, but not as a primary feature as is the case here, IMO.

"The hip roofs, truncated to allow for second story terraces, is one detail that I find extremely unattractive. I am glad FLW didn't fall into that trap."

Funny, I don't see it that way; but I respect that it could seem so to other designers. To me it seems the logical solution to the problem created by the
choice of roof pitch, the desire for a no-taller-than-necessary building profile, and the difference (when it occurs, as here) between first-floor and second-
floor enclosed footage.

The design doesn't suggest convenient drainage---and perhaps the discontinuity of the ridge of those lower roofs, from the body of the house, just
feels wrong---or looks wrong from the ground ? It makes for tidy elevations, of course . . .
