I think they were taken at Eric's place in Malibu.

Yes, Kay, that's where it is. I love the sentiment on Eric's shirt.

I doubt that the pavilion will be rebuilt on the basis of "sketches"; the original working drawings should be on file at Taliesin (or, now, at the Avery Library in New York ?).

We now have four discussion threads devoted to this project:

I would assume the "sketches" are the working drawings, otherwise I doubt Eric would have approved them as good to go.

And thanks, I didn't realize there had already been discussion on the matter.

> ATTENTION FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FANATICS AND ARCHITECTS!
> As a fundraiser for the Frank Lloyd Wright Revival Initiative, we are proudly producing a livestreamed, two-day, four-hour event July 30th & August 1st entitled "How to Save Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings. REALLY Save Them", a unique multi-faceted program focused on the restoration crisis in America.
> More Frank Lloyd Wright buildings are endangered than ever before. Expanding our mandate, the FLWRI is now committed to protecting and preventing any further loss of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings, or the relocation of them from their original sites.
> Join architectural legends Eric Lloyd Wright and Arthur Dyson as we discuss the FLWRI’s approach to further prevent Wright buildings from meeting the same tragic fate of so many before. In addition, meet two of our principal partners, lead restoration architect Jeff Baker and Stone & Lime Masonry owner Ken Uracius. Attendees will be able to submit questions to any of our guests.
> Also, interspersed within the interviews, we will be live touring at least three rarely seen Frank Lloyd Wright homes. In addition to my own home, the Pappas House, we are coordinating several different options to fit within our four-hour time format. Announcement of those buildings soon.
> In addition to a discounted ticket price, AIA members can earn 4 self-reported CEUs. We are currently selling tickets based on the honor system, so please buy the ticket that is appropriate to your status. Ticket price includes both days plus a link to download the entire show after the event. There is an FAQ section on the page to help answer your questions about the ticket and technical process.
> Please excuse us as we continue to polish the event and ticket page and plan more surprises.
