A quick read of the comments at the end..usually a study in vitriol and intolerance, yields a very well considered comment by "Joamber Hart".

Noise would seem to be the only reasonable complaint the neighbors would have. Outdoor musicales can be disruptive to the neighborhood, even if they are nothing more than chamber music events. It can be hard to concentrate on "America's Funniest Home Videos" with that raucous Mendelsohn Octet in the background.

House museums can be irritants in residential neighborhoods. Ennis, the way Gus Brown managed it, was a constant thorn in the side. But the place to celebrate residential architecture should be in a residential neighborhood, like Arcadia. It is incumbent upon Rawling to operate the Wright House in a way that fits in with the nature of the residential surroundings, or the whole idea of the place will be lost. That the neighbors doubt this will be the case is understandable, but the thrust of Rawling's argument should be that the house will continue to fit into the area as comfortably as it always has.

The neighbors ought to have been more upset and resistant when the condominium was built.

Can't anything be gleamed from the success of the Darwin Martin house? Also located in a much older, established residential neighborhood its presence and visitors don't seem to disturb anyone. In the case of Martin, residents were happy to see the original property re-assembled. The creation of the new visitor center was a welcome addition. It's fascinating how differently people view this situation - some feeling that prestige and value are added to their neighborhood (Martin) while others feel threatened (Wright).

In Buffalo, no dedicated parking is available for architourists. On street parking and frequent car turnover (people noise, car doors slamming, cars starting) as well as finding parking for resident's guests in the high season may be a nuiscence to some of the Buffalo neighbors. But these are issues in many urban neighborhoods.

That issue seems to have been solved at Arcadia...the leasing of the adjacent church lot fronting on the arterial E. Camelback Road was a brilliant solution that should be making all of this a moot point.

What is the material of the Martin pavement? At a glance, it looks like black top, but it obviously isn't. Was the original gravel with concrete trim?

To which New Jersey client and house does Ms. Levi refer ... as being the genesis of the David Wright design?

Ennis is not really a good example of FLW open to for public tours as there is absolutely no parking available.

The one problem that I have with the David Wright house neighbors is that pretty much all of them had to know about the FLW house before they bought in the neighborhood.

As one of Divine's kooky friends says in the film Female Trouble: "They're just jealous because we're pretty".

I don't know which New Jersey project Levi believes was the progenitor of the David Wright House, but it was FLW's scheme, "How to Live in the Southwest" (Mono 7/286), done the same year the house was built, virtually unaltered. He would never have built a raised house like that in NJ.
