Guess the answer is no . . .

There are nine drawings for Baird at the Artstor site; a site plan is not included.

When I tried to see it years ago it was hidden behind a tall hedge. A corner was visible from the end of the driveway.

They say you can see through the hedge in winter. If you hurry you might catch it in time; otherwise wait til next winter.

Congratulations, MOman; let us know how the remaining forays pan out !

Perhaps an oddity of the appreciation of Wright's place in the world of architecture---or is that Architecture---is that the quantity of built work, while mentioned frequently, is nevertheless not remarked upon as an achievement of its own, unrivaled surely by any well-known practitioner ? Perhaps one doesn't want to dwell on the matter, for fear of raising the "quantity-versus-quality" bogeyman . . .?

MOman2, do you mean 'denouement' or 'climax'?

denouement
the final part of a play, movie, or narrative in which the strands of the plot are drawn together and matters are explained or resolved.
