Interesting house. Can stand alone without borrowing anything from FLW. The corrugated sheet metal reminds me more of Stephen Badanes of Jersey Devil.

Heavy Duty, as we would have said some decades ago. I wonder what those shells are made of---some sort of fiberglass sheet, maybe ?

What a wonderful frivolity!! Goff, to be sure, and perhaps a hint, as seen from above, of Whirling Dervish.

Bristol, VA
$225,000

3 bed, 2.5 bath, 2,647sqft, 1.5acre lot

From the listing: Frank Lloyd Wright-esque home. Rare opportunity to restore a modernist gem. Beautifully designed home in a great area. Close to all of Bristol amenities. Needs some TLC. Great large lot with privacy. Very unique design. Must see to appreciate.

This is the WORST set of photos I have ever seen in a Realtor listing.

Regarding the house in Homer Glen, IL listed above as "Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece," the Realtor involved tells me that the owner has said that the Foundation supplied plans for a house built in or planned for a client in San Diego, and that the house for sale was "based on" those plans, with certain changes including to the form of the roof.

The only buildings Wright planned for San Diego, as far as I know, were a cinema in 1905 and the Harvey Furgatch design, deriving from the Ralph Jester project, of 1959.

The Homer Glen house was built in 2003. Would the Foundation have been in the business of selling plans drawn by others than Mr Wright---say, for instance, a John Rattenbury design---prior to that date ?
