This topic was going like gangbusters last week and then it sort of fizzled out. Maybe I can revive it with another post.

What about the other Gropius House?

Walter Gropius - Bauhaus Master's House (meisterhauser) - Dessau Germany - 1925-26 (demolished by bombing 1945)

Absolutely amazing. It appeared in a Metropolis article in July of 2006. He is/was a tremendous designer and architect. He was also the first of the Harvard Five.

So who is going to take me on a tour of Barrington area architectural landmarks next time I am in Chicago. I believe Moneypit Modern's home is in the area too! I think the USG Research Village is there as well!

By the way, Koenig House I was demolished to make way for the Glendale Freeway.

Moderns-r-us -- sadly neither of the Barrington houses are visable from the road, and both are privately owned. Keep an eye on the Chicago Bauhaus & Beyond site www.chicagobauhausbeyond.org. I'm sure at some point they'll do another tour there. The USG Research Park is in Palatine, pretty close to Barrington.

Koenig House #1

Postby mwl » Mon Dec 03, 2007 7:55 am

Hey Tony et al,
Pierre told me that his first house was not actually demoed, that they had built the freeway on top of his residence... Imagine what future generations will say when they find that house buried in concrete...

41) Cliff May - Experimental House - Sullivan Canyon, Los Angeles, 1956

The Cliff May home featured a huge skylight in the center of the home. Interior had only two fixed walls (bath and kitchen) leaving maximum flexibility in floor plan. One of the last projects May worked with Chris Choate on. I believe is a registered landmark with City of Los Angeles.

Yes, it did. The NYT article tells how Mr. Ledner and his wife rescued their home.

Hi pinetree,

I think an extensive remodel should be included. So that includes Frank's, even though I don't particularily care for it.

Of course the question becomes defining just what is "extensive enough"?
