I dunno. I believe someone out there with a like sensibility could pull off building a Schilndler 'plan.' It would be expensive but worth seeing/doing if the right client came along. It's very interesting to discuss his working meathod- own crew, on site supervision, design on the fly. Two great mod...

it always seemed to me Lautner moved in way different places then Rudy- places that were filled with big budgets! Somehow, that makes RM a lot more interesting to me; his innovations more innovative -then even Lautners! and maybe I haven't heard enough 'gossip' but it's hard for me to imagine JL dri...

Wright must be rolling over in his graves(s)! I wish they would turn the place(s) into a graduate/professional study center- a place much lik...
