Wow, Elizabeth! This really makes me want to see the house even though I feel as if I already have through your words. Wonderful descriptions and analysis.
Hey, thanks Tod,
This trip, this house, really surprised me. I wasn't expecting it to "hit" me this way. I'm beginning to realize a whole new side of Wright's work. When I saw the Graycliff property, Wright may not have captured as much of Isobel's history and personality, but he made it up with that all glass living room. From a distance it really can be mistaken as being part of the trees; the peek-a-boos between the pillars/tree trunks, gives a great view of beyond. So physically recreating the environment that the house is situated in, was pretty brilliant. Wright is full of surprises.
