Palos Verdes Estates Home No Moore

Postby 24x48 » Thu Apr 26, 2012 10:01 am

LA Times this morning featured a photograph of the late Moore House and another with demoliton complete. It was completed in 1959.

According to a CurbedLA article, the owner (named as Mark Paullin in the Times photo description) claimed that he did not know who the architect (Lloyd Wright) was. Not that it should matter; however, one would think purchasing a unique home would potentially bring controversy. Controversy at the Conservancy.

I viisted the property over 10 years ago and was delighted by the striking geometry.

Mr. Paullin's calendar must be a fun read -

Wednesday: Demolish the Lloyd Wright

Saturday: Burn the DeKooning

Tuesday: Melt the Tiffany
