But . . . but . . . it's so special. And just like something Mr Wright might have commissioned -- from the village idiot ?

It's a fact that the Foundation has copyright protection for the trade name "Frank Lloyd Wright" -- isn't it ? I believe the facial image is copyrighted.
And I know that it isn't worth the money to pursue every copyright violator. But isn't there some intermediate step that could be taken, to disincentivize
the illegitimate use of Wright's name ?

The unlimited budget is an architect's worst nightmare. The only 'people' I can imagine living in that thing, with Kenny G noodling in the background, are those blue beings from the horrid James Cameron movie.

Oh my. It's a prairie house with a ripoff of Fallingwater right in the center. Love the very Wrightian big plain front door at a 45 degree angle.

Good thing they mentioned the "Meticulous craftsmanship & unparalleled attention to authentic detail" or I might not have noticed.

The view is pretty fantastic though. Just buy it, tear it down, and do something in a textile block. Problem solved!

Another 'Fallingwater':

Secluded Media home inspired by Fallingwater asks $485K

Might be better termed, 'Needs-to-Fall-into-Water'.

"Inspired by Wright’s famous Fallingwater home in upstate Pennsylvania, Hay attempted to design his own home in a similar manner, making the most of the
property’s location along a stream."

I give props to anyone who spells Fallingwater correctly. That said, it must take a remarkable level of gall to refer to Wright's work in the context of a
house like the one shown. "Needs-to-Fall-into-Water" could be a new subset of our investigations . . . !

The view is quite nice ... maybe they should raze the house so folks can enjoy it ... Very Happy
