Re: House by Henry Kamphoefner & George Matsumoto - Raleigh, NC

Thanks for posting these.
I've never seen this house.
Kamphoefner and Matsumoto are still legendary in North Carolina.

Re: Article: "This Newly-Renovated Motor Lodge in North Carolina Is Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Iconic Style"

Stumbled across this building years ago when it was empty.
This is the first I've heard of it since.
If I can get by there I'll post shots.
It's about a 2 hr drive.

Wondering if SREckland still has the offer open to take fresh shots.
I for one would love to see them.

NEW BOOK

Soviet Architectural Avante Gardes Bloomsbury Press. According to the description I read, this book was painstakingly researched with the thesis that modern architecture under Stalin was not as completely shut down as the usual narrative conveys. According to the reviewer: "... a fascinating final c...

OK - I'll take a closer look at Studio Ozenfant.

Regarding Ozenfant Studio:
RG - do you know the story behind the elimination of the saw-tooth skylights? Water failure of some kind?

If it has not been stated earlier:
Cliif May and the Prices must have been fans of Wurster's Gregory Farmhouse.

Re: FLLW CANTILEVER CLUB INDUCTION NOMINATION

Cool. Here's the archive entry: https://breuer.syr.edu/project.php?id=264 Now: Seeing as how there are only two participating participants in the Cantilever Club so far and seeing as how there is no consensus between them about the first nomination, I'd say, therefore the nomination fails. It's ok. ...

Re: FLLW CANTILEVER CLUB INDUCTION NOMINATION

Ha! I had not read any of that - thank you! Will do so now. Right off the bat, I'm inclined to disagree with Ford, but interested in what he has to say.

Re: FLLW CANTILEVER CLUB INDUCTION NOMINATION

I'm interested what the Wright Chat consensus would be on inducting this house into the FLLW-CC? On the one hand, relative to Wright, it's too prosaic to be given the award. Yet, on the other hand, I think it's worthy of Wright in terms of its ingenuity and downright denial of conventional technical...

FLLW CANTILEVER CLUB INDUCTION NOMINATION

Whereas what the ancient Greeks did for the column, Frank Lloyd Wright did for the cantilever and Whereas there are cantilevers and then there are CANTILEVERS - I would like to place in nomination the 1947 New Canaan, Connecticut house of Marcel Breuer for inclusion into the FLLW CANTILEVER CLUB can...

Twelve maybe exactly when I read The Fountainhead.
I was totally captured and mesmerized by it.
