    Frank Lloyd Wright's long lost...dog house?

    http://www.marinij.com/sananselmo/ci...|cat:0|order:5

    FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT, arguably America's greatest architect, designed more than 1,000 buildings in his 70-year career. And one dog house........

    The notoriously self-important architect is renowned for the Guggenheim Museum in New York and the futuristic Marin County Civic Center, among any number of grand edifices that bear his name. That's why it's so astounding that the great man was neither too famous nor too proud to design a dog house in San Anselmo for a black Labrador retriever named Eddie.


    Good story....enjoy!

    "It leaks," Miner said. "What is more appropriate or authentic for a Frank Lloyd Wright building than for it to leak? If it didn't leak, no one would believe it was by Frank Lloyd Wright. It's the perfect ending to the story."

    I'm thinking of FALLING WATERS.............
    I once almost bought a house that the blueprint was FFW's but it was so different.
    My children were small and there bedrooms would be on 1st floor and ours with a balcony and view of the city would be on the third floor.
    2nd floor with balcony and view was the living/diningroom and a pullman kitchen.
    That was in 1976. He was way before his time.
