All well said.

Re: Sullivan's bank at Owatonna, MN

The PBS NewsHour is having a "moment" with masters of Midwest architecture, it seems. Tonight's PBS News Weekend contains a segment on a new exhibit of Dale Chihuly's glass creations, said to be the first art exhibit to be held at Taleisin West. https://www.pbs.org/video/chihuly-in-the-desert-16556...

Re: Article: "The Honest Arrogance of Frank Lloyd Wright"

If one must grade FLW Man vs Architect, it is better and more to the point to watch his interviews with Mike Wallace and Hugh Downs wherein each question tossed his way was answered immediately and reasonably. Although he did hem and haw a bit when the subject of the Illinois Project was brought up...

Re: FLLW Cooke House on the market (Virginia Beach, VA)

Cooke is a unique blend of a radial grid hemicycle with a diamond grid bedroom wing, on a very desirable, though at times vulnerable site. A neat house to say the least...the Bermuda roofing is a treat. Pictures 7 and 8 at this link show an evening pic with what appears to be subterranean room bene...

Re: Wayland MA 1961 Usonian House on a HUD Auction Bids Due 3.6.2022

Fascinating details ... four (only 4) rather interesting perfs in a hallway? ... fine dentils ... both of which suggest the work of an apprentice, but the strangest detail is the LR fireplace ... almost hidden away in a progressively narrowing concrete block cavity with barely room for a chair.

Re: YIKES!! Lykes

The Lykes House @ 6836 North 36th Street in Phoenix is on the street where a house on 36th Street near Lincoln Drive exploded on Saturday. Does anyone know how close Lykes is to Lincoln? Never measured the distance, but it's probably at least a quarter mile north .... See: https://www.google.com/ma...
