Strangely I never ever saw the house. Nestled back of the beyond in the old neighborhood.

The entire house is built of pre-cast, terra-cotta-tinted concrete blocks, formed on a 2-foot module.

Not that I'm a FLW expert, but I haven't seen that in other houses.

I love FLW, but I hate his no-garage insistence and if I actually had the money for a house like that, I would have to add a garage of some sort.

I have never actually been in a FLW-designed house, however, I have been in one designed by one of his disciples.

Coincidentally, I toured the FLW Home and Studio and FLW-designed Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL, today. Touring the Robie House in South Side Chi-town tomorrow.



It is what it is.

Twice a year when I pay my property taxes I get to wander through a FLW building. He designed our local civic center. Cool building to be inside. Rides that line between nostalgia and futurism. It was featured heavily in Gattaca

Also got to tour Taliesen West over the holidays. Another very cool facility. Was surprised to hear it is still an active architecture school.
