Apartment Therapy has a great post today about Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian houses. I suspect, but have no basis, that the architect who designed our house was inspired by these houses. Our house is long and low with a flat roof, walls of windows and the outside soffit lighting so prominently featured on the Usonians. Also, we have no formal living space, the rooms are compartmentalized, yet flow together, and we have the exposed brick wall in the living room and kitchen. I wish I knew who the architect of our home is, or was, and how to go about finding out. Conservatively speaking he, or she, might well be 85-years old at this point, or older, if they’re even still alive. Maybe I just like the romance of imagining him/her channeling Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural genius as they lovingly designed our home, but I sure would love to ask. On the other hand, maybe I’ll just leave well enough alone and live with my fantasies, as I could be way off base in my suspicions. At any rate, check out the article on Apartment Therapy just for kicks. These houses are beautiful and worth a look.
