Frank Lloyd Wright home in Los Feliz is for sale to the right buyer
The 1924 Ennis House, heavily damaged in the Northridge quake and by rains, is being offered for $15 million. It's the largest of the architect's experimenta...
This home has been completely restored at a cost in excess of 3/4 million dollars. I took some exterior pictures back in the summer and then had the opportunity this past Sunday to have a completely unfettered access to shoot the inside. This is definitely a house to put on your bucket list to visit.
For those interested, I've uploaded a series of twelve or thirteen shots of FLW's Zimmerman house, Manchester NH, with scroll-down descriptive text. (Text relates to the whole series, often not on the same photo page).
(Guggenheim NY text in due course.)
If you live in the Midwest, and have been putting off a visit to the Dana Thomas House in Springfield IL, you better not put it off much longer.
The idiots (I should apologize, but I won't) in the Illinois government are balancing their budget by closing numerous sites and state parks including Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana Thomas House.
Here is a list of ALL the closing...
Are you all aware of the wonderful resource of the Historical American Building Survey (HABS)? They have photos and sometimes drawings of historic buildings, including buildings by Wright. You all may find these very useful if you want more detailed information about specific Wright buildings.
I am offering a service to print architectu...

If you have a photo or a house to add, please let us know over at the Group. Thank you for your help! Hopefully we can catalog them all.

The conference videos for the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's Annual Conference in Western Pennsylvania are available.
This year's conference was held in Western Pennsylvania and included inspirational talks on sustainability, the spiritual experience of Wright's creations and tours of wonderful spaces like Fallingwater and more.
For complete conference v...
I've been to, obviously, the Gordon House, in Salem, OR, and to Fallingwater and to Kentuck Knob in PA. Didn't have a digital camera when I went there, though (was a few years ago).
Fallingwater in person was so incredible.
My ex-husband has been to more FLW house—and to Taliesin West in AZ. In fact, our (well, my) oldest cat is named Taliesin (Tali for short).
A new free podcast subscription is now available from the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy's Annual Conference, held this last October in Chicago. Two podcast episodes are now available. One audio with slides and the other is a video podcast. More podcasts of talks and presentations from the conference on their way. Some will be audio podcasts, other video podcasts....

I've just posted a photo I took of Fallingwater from that spot downstream with the classic view. Mine was taken in March 2005. I wonder if we could find one from each month from the same spot? It looks like there are about 5 others in the pool already so we may be almost half way there.
The American Institute of Architects has just announced their America's Favorite Architecture list as part of the AIA 150 celebration. I've started a new group for all entries on the list. Check it out at AIA 150

Included in the DVD and the downloadable trailer are the shots from the conference's talks and presentation and includes several unusual pictures taken at Wright designed private houses, normally not open to the public.

Hey all - I wanted to know if it is okay to post pictures of Monona Terrace (Madison, WI)? It was constructed based on FLW's designs, however, after his death. Does that still count? I just don't want to be obnoxious, post a bunch of them, and have people going, "whaaa?" I'll post one, and you can let me know if it's okay or not. Thanks much!!
i did some photoshopping on my guggenheim photo to bring out detail in darker shadows. it looks like (possibly) some other photos in the pool might benefit from some of that. but now that i've looked at my original again i'm not sure any more. the shadow under the overhang doesn't seem so strong now. do you think the lightened version is an improvement?
here's the origi...
Thanks to those who have joined and posted their pics. I was going to leave this group dormant until I could get some pics of my own to start things, but no need...I'll still get the pics though. If you see any other FLW fans/photos please tell them about the group.
These are pics of the Gordon House, now located in Salem, OR. FLW designed the house, but it wasn't built until after he died (they couldn't afford it at that point). It was moved after the owner died—and rebuilt, piece by piece—because the new owners of the land wanted to tear it down.
