Designed to reflect FLW's Fallingwater. This house is located in Three Rivers, California.

The silent building, its anonymous architect and builder, and its present owner are all incapable of defending against the unwarranted mischaracterization of it as "designed to reflect Fallingwater." Indeed, Fallingwater, its well-known architect, absent builder and dead owner are likewise unable to mount such a defense. The living merchant who presumably stands to gain . . . something . . . by fostering the pretense that there is anything connecting this house to the earlier masterwork, has the only voice audible to the public---and to a potential purchaser. Does that seem fair ?

Is it fair for a used car salesman to sell a car to George Costanza by claiming it once belonged to Jon Voight?

Aaron Green home for sale in Denver. Words escape me... the bones are still there but all the original finishes have been painted or covered over. And what's up with the exposed ducting?

Aaron Green destroyed - when I first heard that Wright referred to this profession as "interior desecrators" I thought it was a little harsh, but I'm beginning to understand over time.....

How could anyone live in that house without wearing shades?
Tragic.

A blindfold would be better yet. Does anyone see a way past the white-paint (or any-color paint) syndrome in the context of real estate sales tactics ? I suppose an easement clause could be written into a sales contract---but that would presumably only apply when the new owner was ready to sell and move on . . .

Fascinating. I looks like alike a grasshopper than a crustacean of some sort, a crab, maybe.
This is a Goffian intrusion into the bland 50s neighborhood, and should be kept. Any connection to FLW is irrelevant.
