Using the same model of the Larkin building I have done a small experiment playing a bit with frames and points of view:



The complete set of images can be seen here:

And details of the project here:

I hope you like it!

More wonderful images. Thank you David.

We are reminded of the story that Wright's mother surrounded her young son with images of gothic cathedrals, as part of the predetermination that he would become a great architect.

David, are you sure the lay-light glass was transparent? Wouldn't it have been translucent so the structure of the skylight would not show through?

Pp. 130 and 132 of The Early Work show translucent ceilings. 130 is from the same spot, one level up. 139 shows another such ceiling at the entry to the employees' recreation room.

Without studying (yet) the photos in question, I raise the semantic issue of opaque/obscure/translucent/transparent. Some of those terms are used, confusingly, interchangeably. I will have to do a dictionary search.

Interesting. I think you're right, as as usual!

Transparent: Images show through; you can recognize grandma.
Translucent: Light passes through; grandma is faint.
Obscure: Less light than translucent; grandma is unidentifiable.
Opaque: No more light penetrates than through a brick; grandma may or may not still be there... like Schrodinger's cat.

Roderick,
Do you think here Grandma (or, technically "mother") is translucently identifiable, or is she (technically "he") obscure?

Well, in this case I think you have to say
mid way between translucent and obscure
as in faint yet still identifiable.
That should clear it up.

Tom,
It sounds like it's still a mystery...

Heh-heh. Love it. Roderick's definitions are (colorfully) definitive. Miscreants and the careless, you've been warned. Thank you.

DavidC: I'm amazed at your ability to track all the internet ...

I found this description funny:

Ongoing discussion at SaveWright.org on the Larkin project 10 pages worth at this moment, sometimes quite nitpicky (right down to questions of mortar color and tobacco smoke staining) [...]

I guess we're a bit geeky ...
