Robie House Conservation Management Plan 2019

Post by Tom »

Just found this online published in 2019

https://flwright.org/explore/robie-hous ... ement-plan

This publication has the most complete description of the steel in Robie I've ever see and that has probably ever been published.
However in the description of the west end framing of the cantilevered roof the writing seems to become unclear and I think there is a mistake. The beam 'S' is never mentioned in the large paragraph in screenshot below. Can anybody follow that better than I?

Ran across this sketch of a version ("Scheme II") of the Beachy house - 1906.
