Do you recall the architect? Wright and Like Tour in WI (mid-2000s)

Post by Tim »

Thank you in advance!

I saw a house on the Wright and Like WI tour

Going from memory it was in 2000's

The house was the house of a former Taliesin architect or maybe apprentice

The house was built into a hillside with a cantilever deck (Pew house like)

I seem to think the architect passed away

Does the house or architect ring a bell?

The 2000s is a twenty-year span---unless you mean specifically the first decade. Do you have any record that would identify the year ? Did you (or anyone you know) take photos on the tour ?

In what ways did the house resemble the Pew (or another) house---specifically ? What materials and details do you remember ?

Have you considered contacting Wright in Wisconsin https://wrightinwisconsin.org/wright-2019 for information on past tours ?

The worst part, until last year, I had the brochure!

Good call, I will reach out to them. They might have an archive beyond 2012.

The tour was between 2001 and 2009.

The actual architect was an apprentice and I believe of Asian ancestry, a vague memory though!

Like play Blue's Clues :oops:

Heh. Turns out searching here for "Wright and Like" doesn't work very well ! Three all-too-common words . . .

Funny, during more more meetings, I have been trying different word combos in Google image. I am pretty sure that I'd recognize it if I saw it. :roll:

There was a brand new house by Helmut Ajango on the tour one year in that timeframe. Ajango was never an apprentice, and I think he was from one of the Baltic countries not Asia, but that was the first thing that came to mind.

Yes! Yes! Yes! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Helmut Ajango was it

Good architect, for sure

(I must have been thinking about another Wright apprentice who was Asian. :oops: :oops: :oops: )
