Re: DailyWright 6.27.22

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 . . . These aerial shots that include the horizon give the lie to my previous assertions that Taliesin birds-eye presentation dra...

DailyWright 6.29.22

http://sdrdesign.com/DA1957PostResidence.jpg Several surprise Wright or Wright-like sightings occurred while searching for other images and drawings of this Erdman I design. At Artstor, this Ben Dombar drawing surfaced: https://library.artstor.org/#/asset/31716740;prevRouteTS=1656513731197 and thes...

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...

Re: Article: H. H. Richardson Home set to be demolished - Brookline, MA

That vast, top-lighted, stone-built space---a space entirely devoted to circulation, to dramatizing the simple act of moving from one floor to the next---is an architectural extravagance of the first order, regardless of period or style. Encountering it must be something like navigating one of those...

Re: Article: H. H. Richardson Home set to be demolished - Brookline, MA

I was inspired to look for a photo of the facade of the State Capitol building, to see Richardson's second and third stories. I got more than I was hoping for: What a marvelous grand stair ! Is that Richardson and Eidlitz ? https://untappedcities.com/2020/06/05/behind-the-scenes-inside-the-new-york-...

Re: An Evening at Penwern

Wonderful story, Mark. And I don't think I've ever seen proper photos of the dining room---though there must be one or more in your book on the house. There is nothing in the available drawings of the house that would prepare on for the sight of this space, with its unusual array of windows stretchi...

Drawing of the stone flooring in the store. https://library.artstor.org/#/asset/285 ... 6101528633

This is a very useful video, as little interior filming has been seen over the years.

DailyWright 6.24.22

http://sdrdesign.com/DA1907FabyanRemodeling.jpg The Andersons have acknowledged that they didn't always have the Sun on their side, as it were, when shooting Wright; no one was paying them to wait for (or to arrange their travel schedules around) the ideal time of day for architectural photography....

Re: DailyWright 6.22.22

Thanks, Pat. Do we know anything about Heath's neighbor Coatsworth ? In Buffalo of the period I find only a prominent lumber and coal man of that name, living on Cottage Street.

DailyWright 6.22.22

http://sdrdesign.com/DA1904HeathResidenceParkway.jpg Today's DailyWright photo is study in reds and greens---or at least that's one way to enjoy it. How pleased the architect might have been, to see his building in warm early-morning light and in the company of some fine early-fall foliage. https:/...
