Frank Lloyd Wright / PHX

Image
In 1949, Frank Lloyd Wright was Commissioned by the Southwest Christian Seminary to build a University on 8 acres in Phoenix, AZ. The design was complete and made public in 1950, but the bible college shut down and the project never started. Wright died in 1959, but his widow allowed the plans to be used for the First Christian Church. It was completed in 1972. The bell tower was built in 1978. The moody monsoon skies.

Neutra / Darling

Image
In 1937, the first redwood-clad house by Richard Neutra was built in San Francisco. Otto Winkler assisted on the project. The Parnassus Heights house was built for Dr. Darling. Photo: Julius Shulman, Getty Research Institute The redwood house is now a red house. Other than that, it looks intact. This tree wasn't  there in 1937. Does that look like 80 years of growth? Photo: Julius Shulman,  Getty Research Institute Photo: Julius Shulman,  Getty Research Institute Neutra was busy in 1937. Over a dozen projects were built, including  The Davis House  and  The Strathmore Apartments .
