Wright wasn’t supposed to be designing houses on the side, but he did anyway. This is one of them, a great example of a small Wright composition sitting on a quiet dead-end street in the middle of the street grid.
A Blog detailing the beauty of St. Louis architecture and the buildup of residue-or character-that accumulates over the course of time.

I’ve really been enjoying reading your blog and found the posts on F.L. Wright. By happenstance I’m currently living in Scottsdale, AZ, just “down the road” from Taliesin, and while working out on the East Coast there was the chance to drive over to Ohiopyle (PA), where I camped and visited Kentuck Knob (bicycling distance from the camp-ground) and also, of course, Falling Water. Both absolutely wonderful examples of his work. To top all of this off, my ex-husband and I lived in a neighborhood in Columbia, MO that was replete with many houses designed by a student of Wright.
What interests me most, at this time, is what is going on in St. Louis as far as development and rehabilitation are concerned, ergo, your (and others) blog(s).
Thank you so much for the interesting posts and the guest posts that you feature from time to time.
