Wrapping up the city hall tours we end in Aarhus, for a building that is both quite different and yet fully within the same spirit of the others. Without a doubt the outside is quite different with an austere presentation to the world.  Rectangular, punched windows, and covered in a rigid grid of grey marble.  […]

For less than the price of a small “shack” in my current neck of the woods,* you can buy a designated historical masterpiece by none other than Frank Lloyd Wright.  And once again, thanks to the magic of a real estate listing, we get great photos of the inside of such a usually private work!  […]

When I visited the Ennis house a few years ago, it was only for a drive by.  Being a privately-owned house, seeing the inside, and the results of the renovation being undertaken, was not possible.  UNTIL NOW… for it is up for sale!  And with that comes a real estate listing that includes a raft […]

Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture looms almost as large as his reputation (a reputation built upon both his architecture and his ego and actions therein…).  One of the few architects to invent and develop four distinct “styles” during his tenure, each fully developed from a rigorous set of concepts, he designed over 1000 buildings (over 500 […]

Here’s a fun house that doesn’t just overlook a nearby pond, but instead straddles it like a bridge.  Somewhat reminiscent of both Tadao Ando’s Church on the Water and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling water, the house is not separate from the landscape, but rather interacts with it and powerfully invites it in. I’ve always been […]

Fallingwater, by the larger-than-life Frank Lloyd Wright, is undoubtedly one of the most famous houses in the world. If you were tasked to design six cottages on a field of rolling hills situated a half mile from the site, to house participants in various Fallingwater educational programs? The winning entry in a competition to do […]

Alright, after that tease here’s the real textile block building!   Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis house, built in 1923. Both the idea and the floor plan are simple – but, as with many things, it is the execution that renders this stunning. The idea was the textile block itself, using a simple technique and material […]

Note… this is not a Frank Lloyd Wright building: But it is perhaps one of the classiest restroom facades around. (Just back from an amazing week in LA!  Sorry for the week of silence.  The above was taken within California Adventure at the Disneyland resort;  I laughed so hard when I saw this, I wonder […]

What’s this? Not just one, but two FLW houses on the same trip? Yes! I’d first visited the Hollyhock house in 1996, at the tail end of a trip to the LA area. I had a Monday free, and while I knew the house would be closed that day a friend and I drove out […]
