Those are nice windows.

Not practical in the Midwest, where all the lead bars provide ample opportunity for air leakage and thermal transmission.

the floodlight at the top in picture number 1 is more than awkward, though.

Leaking Editor:
Security. Note also the added drainpipes. Heh heh.

Also lead poisoning?

I'm not sure those aren't original...

Nothing is practical in the Midwest, except walleye fishing.

I'd certainly give it a try- leakage or no leakage- I like the style! Of course you know I'm curious and will have to google this lovely place. Excellent capture!

Those are lovely art deco style windows. Nice honey colour stone, too.

"ART DECO"??!?!?!

Is no one aware of all Frank Lloyd Wright traditions?

PRAIRIE STYLE, please!

Also, I live in such a stupid bubble that I figured most everybody was familiar with the Hollyhock House. The Ennis House I mentioned the other day, not so much (although it also shows up as interiors in Blade Runner).

But what's with those cell phone antennas?

Beautiful place! Although FLW's houses are always falling apart.

lthough FLW's houses are always falling apart.

So is mine.

Different at least. The Hollyhock House I know is in the UK.

Beautiful windows, great shots of them too.

Blushing Editor:
Thanks, all. You are not too kind, but just kind enough.

And we thought it was more in the pseudo-post-Mayan style, but we are not experts.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
