The so-called dream house---a confection reminiscent of Wright's early work---stuck me at first glance as embodying three elements characteristic of, among other things, Wright's (very

What weighs down Dream House is the massiveness and complexity of the roof, extending way too far out. The design of the chapel is much more elegant, in spite of the steep roof. Also, it was designed by Silsbee.
