1936 ? Really ? Wow. Dow absorbed the built Willey residence and flew with it . . .?

The primary-colored glass (original ?) gave the owner "permission" to make a colorful nest within the building's restrained material palette. What a delightful result. One wants the owner to sell the house furnished and equipped just as it appears in these photos.

Can't recall where published, but as a pre-teen seeing Dow's own house "submerged" into it's pond was an architectural epiphany; and of course, Wright a revelation not long after!

For me, it was the reverse: At 6, I saw the Hedrick Blessing iconic photo of Fallingwater; some years later, I saw that wonderful photo of the Dow House. Two masterpieces set in water.
