Re: Article: "The Ultimate Guide to Frank Lloyd Wright"

That's handy: Dwell collects its own Wright stories and presents them as a group. This sentence, near the beginning of their introduction; caught my eye: "Today, his impact continues because of his enduring design philosophies and formal teachings." Unless I'm mistaken, one effort Mr Wright cannot b...

Re: EMH blog post: Wright assumed that we would be kind to each other

His own 1922 house was a handsome enough take on Wright's Henry Allen house of five years earlier::

Re: Who's going to Buffalo?

Scary, isn't it---yet even this event, a year and a half into the pandemic, was predicted as a possibility---with or without a virus variant; I don't recall. Truly, the failure of American primary and secondary education---perhaps in part as a result of the lack of central planning and national stan...

When in doubt, gush. At least no one will be offended . . .

Re: Game of Thrones

On slightly smaller scale, and with a more secular purpose, what is to be said about Machu Picchu, or Hadrian's Villla, or the FSC campus ? Is it not possible to contrive an organic site plan more workable and rewarding than those you mention ?

Re: Article: Brizo FLW Bath Collection

Surely I don't propose a rule so broad as to admit of no exception. In Van Gogh's case he wasn't making something that could be mistaken for the Japanese original. Some of my furniture designs are noticeably Wrightian---but I wouldn't dream of using the man's name in promoting it.

Re: A New Path Forward for the School of Architecture Founded by Frank Lloyd Wright

From the above-linked piece:

"Before dying in 1959, he laid out in his will a vision for a community living, working and learning together on the land."

Can someone point me to, or quote or reproduce, the document referred to---a will, apparently ?

Re: Game of Thrones

Everyone's entitled to play architect without benefit of training or experience. The results however shouldn't be taken as more than they could be under the circumstances. Look at those clear decorated windows Craig mentions: while the patterns are indeed reminiscent of ones drawn by Mr Wright, noti...

Re: Video/Talk: Kaufmann House (Fallingwater) - Mill Run, PA

"The house is built to the scale of the falls. The rock ledges---there's a certain amount of space between them; Wright based the ceiling heights on the scale of the space between the rock ledges, therefore the furniture has to be in scale with those ceiling heights . . . so it kind of all works tog...

Re: Article: Brizo FLW Bath Collection

Quite odd, surely. Guess I'm a sucker for so-called production values---the craft of visual presentation, divorced from content. "Interpretation" of an artist's work necessarily implies that the object contrived is not in fact the faithful copying of the original. We honor faithful copying in all fo...

As I never tire of explaining, to post images at Wright Chat requires the intermediary of a Web host, a commercial entity which offers to store a copy of your photo that has been given a unique Web address which, when entered in the right place here, will result in the image appearing on the "page."...

Re: Article: Brizo FLW Bath Collection

Undeniably. And the corner of the glazed-block wall is wrong, too. Now I notice a bit of rubble-stone in the corner, and not the Wrightian kind, either. What is that thing supporting the shower head ? One interesting note is the piece of farm machinery or equipment on the (flooded ?) floor, receivin...
