Architects House Themselves - Top 50 PLUS

Postby moderns-r-us » Tue Nov 13, 2007 12:26 pm

Architects House Themselves - Top 50

What are your favorite Houses that Architects have designed for Themselves.

Here is how it works:

Each new post will add one more House that an Architect has designed for Themself.
You will copy and paste the list into your reply, as it exists, and then add your one new line item.
Do not use the quote feature.
Please post only one entry at a time and allow someone else to post before posting again.
Please include the Architect's Name, Home name (if applicable) and the location of the home including the city and state. Add a website if you can find one

I will be starting the game with the first three most obvious entries.

1) Frank Lloyd Wright - Home and Studio - Oak Park Illinois
http://www.wrightplus.org/homestudio/homestudio.html
2) Frank Lloyd Wright - Taliesin - Spring Green Wisconsin
http://www.franklloydwright.org/index.c ... n=taliesin
3) Frank Lloyd Wright - Taliesin West - Scottsdale, Arizona
http://www.franklloydwright.org/index.c ... liesinwest
