Re: Article: Kirkland Museum (Denver, CO) launches celebration of architect Frank Lloyd Wright

Anybody want to take a stab at identifying either of the components of this "married" art glass piece ?

Re: For sale: Kaneji Domoto house (Mermaid Ranch)- East Hampton, NY

Kiss it (potentially) goodbye: nothing prevents a new owner (as helpfully suggested in the article) from replacing this house, on $4.5 million of waterfront property, with a new monster home "with pool." Of course, nothing would prevent a new owner from adding a pool to this 100-foot-wide property, ...

Re: Sure, we can call anything "Frank Lloyd Wright"

Thanks, Nick. It sure looks like it to me. I delivered kitchens to several Deck Houses in the late 'sixties/early 'seventies, in woodsy suburban neighborhoods west of Boston. I'm trying to think of the name of the direct competitor to Deck House, also in New England, making a product very similar in...

Re: For sale: Richard Neutra's de Graff House - Portland, OR

Well, well. Most interesting. The big question for me: did the house have a hipped roof from the beginning, or was that added at some point later on ? Also of interest to me is the Hupp Skylark/Graham Hollywood in photo 5. This was the last gasp for the bodywork originally designed for the Cord 810-...

Re: Video: 'Modern Wright design'

Melbourne. "Contemporary, Timeless, Nostalgic." Interesting to learn of the specific materials and manufacturers. I don't find the "corner windows" as shown to be inappropriate. One could quibble with the brick-as-wallpaper; we've seen Wright himself do the same, at Price Jr and elsewhere.

Re: designed by FLW sudent?

There is a Williamson house across the street from Nick Hayes's Elizabeth Murphy ASBH near Milwaukee. I can't seem to find the blog post where he discusses that find.

Re: Article: LA's Historic Commission recommends Rudolph Schindler's Oliver House as Monument

Thank you, Roderick and Craig. That has to be the book; odd that I remember it as smaller. When I went to purchase it at Amazon, it turned out not to be available. But I found one at a similar price on eBay, so it's on its way to me. I didn't recall it being a Spanish publication. Interestingly, a c...

Re: Article: LA's Historic Commission recommends Rudolph Schindler's Oliver House as Monument

Thanks. I speak of a different Scheine publication, one I'm curious to know if anyone here has ever seen . . . as described above.

Or perhaps I'm wrong. A copy-and-paste link to the relevant Amazon page would suffice; "copy" is Command+C and "paste" is Command+V on the keyboard.

Re: Handsome Chinese resort employs local crafts

Exactly. And this would feed right in to the Craftsman aesthetic so strongly suggested by what's there now ?

I really do like the complexity of the exterior spaces. The separation of units benefits acoustic privacy, among other advantages.

Re: Article: LA's Historic Commission recommends Rudolph Schindler's Oliver House as Monument

I'll buy that. Houses of the mid-thirties, built and unbuilt, often meet that description; Buck, Delahoyde, Shep II, and Walker are a few others. Schindler favored exterior volumes wrapped in folded planes; these often took the form of short right-angled downward returns of the roof plane. (I wish I...
