DailyWright 7.5.22

http://sdrdesign.com/DA1927IsabelMartinPorte.jpg Photo © Dave Anderson Few photos or drawings of this feature of Graycliff, the Isabel Martin Residence, Derby, NY, are found in print or online. The burbling of running water in the shade at the porte cochère must be a pleasant accompaniment to the a...

Re: Part Usonian, Part Japanese - I like it

Remarkable. Possibly more millwork per square foot than any comparable residential structure ? The site-assembled laminated trusses from sheet material(s) are notable. Less obvious at first take is the spiral circulation that takes the occupant clockwise from the entry, through the master suite and ...

Re: Frank Lloyd Wright's Ashes

John and Lloyd . . . Jack and Lu Howe. I hadn't realized that Gene Masselink died in 1962. Anne Baxter.

Three men and four women named Wright; thirty-nine people with the name Lloyd; forty-six Joneses.

Thanks, Dan, for finding that. Happy Independence Day !

Re: Frank Lloyd Wright's Ashes

Surely there must be an inventory (could that be the right term ??) of the inhabitants of the chapel cemetery . . .

Re: Article: George W. Maher & Pleasant Home Foundation

I wouldn't encourage a comparison of Maher to Wright; the differences couldn't be more stark, as I see it. I sought to contrast the two, with Maher as the Nineteenth-Century example and Wright as the Twentieth. Indeed there has been a growing tendency to invoke "Prairie" when the term is inappropria...

Re: Article: George W. Maher & Pleasant Home Foundation

Stunning---an impressive restoration. All those original light fixtures . . .! Some walls have received the kind of paint treatment attempted at certain Wright restorations, here with more subtle results.

Re: Article: George W. Maher & Pleasant Home Foundation

I'm glad something is being done to further recognize and celebrate this architect's name and work. https://i0.wp.com/www.oakpark.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/Herman-G.-Mallen-House.jpeg?resize=1024%2C683&ssl=1 One can see Mr Wright itching to put his pencil to the improvement of that elevation.

Re: Frank Lloyd Wright's Ashes

Thank you. I hope someone has made a more complete record of the stones, the graphics, the names, and the interior of the chapel, in photographs or video. It is interesting, for instance, to see that Mr Wright took responsibility for the design of the former. I didn't expect to see that Pedro and Di...

Re: DailyWright 6.30.22

I would say this photo https://www.blueskymausoleum.com/image/?action=resize&m_w=800&m_h=600&path=/files/images/Blue_Sky_0003.jpg shows that John is right. I can see Roderick's point about how the slabs should be pitched---but one could argue as well that the water, rather than draining into the gut...

Sorry---that's here. Of course I should have given a credit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTfp31rtIJk The irregular patch of verdigris on the Danforth roof is peculiar . . .

Re: Article: Matthews House -photos / NRHP Nomination

Hmm. At this rate, the house should be available to commoners like me in . . . about a decade. Either the owner is anxious to sell, or they've realized the extent of their overreach ? In any event, fingers crossed for the right Wright-loving buyer to appear. This is a rare treasure. There are some i...
