WILBER C. PEARCE RESIDENCE (1950 - S.320)

Title: Sixty Years of Living Architecture Exhibition, Los Angeles 1954 (Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation project #5427).

Description: A traveling exhibition of Wright's work, consisting of models, photographs and original drawings. A Preview of the exhibition was held in Philadelphia (January 1951). The world wide tour opened in Palazzo Strozzi Florence, Italy (June 1951). In "Sixty Years" (New York), Wright notes that from Florence the Exhibition traveled to "Switzerland, France, German and Holland". The Exhibition catalogs are dated: Paris (April 1952), Zurich (End of May 1952), Munich (May 16 - June 15, 1952), and Rotterdam (dated June 1, 1952). After two years in Europe the exhibition crossed the Atlantic to Mexico City, then to New York (1953). After an exhibition in Los Angeles, June, 1954, the final exhibition took place in Chicago, October, 1956. The Los Angeles exhibition premiere was held at Barnsdall Park’s Municipal Art Center on June 1, 1954, then open to the public from June 2 to July 11, and was extended to July 25, 1954. A temporary pavilion, similar to the pavilion in New York, was attached to the line of kennels that reached from the house to the garage. Exhibition Model #xxx. Unidentified model of single story solar hemicycle (possibly the Pearce Residence). Sixty Years of Living Architecture Exhibition, Los Angeles 1954. Frank Lloyd Wright's first solar hemicycle design was the Jacobs II, a two-story residence designed in 1944. Others included: Mrs. Ruth G. Keith House (Project), Scheme 1, #4711, Taschen 43-59 p.135-6;  E.L. Marting House (Project), #4713, p.138;  Curtis Meyer House #5015, p.170-1;  Kenneth Laurent House #4814, p.206-7;  Dr. Donald S.

Of these, the model is closest to the Pearce Residence but it is only the closest and the exhibit list does not include the Pearce Residence. Note: Exhibition #93 "Keith House, Arlington, N. J., 1947. Original drawings." Wright did design two homes for Mrs. Ruth G. Keith, Detroit, Michigan, 1947. Scheme 1 was a hemicycle, but does not closely match this model. Scheme 2 is rectangular in design. Photographed by Loch Crane in June, 1954.

GEORGE D. STURGES RESIDENCE (1939 - S.272)
   


Date: Circa 1939

Title: George D Sturges House (1939 - S.272) circa 1939. Designed and built in 1939. Photographed shortly after completion. A major portion of the home is cantilevered over the hillside. Although extremely visible, the design affords it an excessive amount of privacy. It appears windowless from the street, but the east side of the home actually has six sets of floor to ceiling double doors that open outward. The living room covers about half the floor space. Two bedrooms are adjacent to the living room and share half of the floor to ceiling doors which open to the balcony. Constructed of brick and redwood. John Lautner, apprentice from 1933-38, handled the construction. Wright utilized this design again in the 1952, Frank S. Sander Residence (S.354) in Stamford, Connecticut. 4 - 2.5 x 2 B&W Proofs, 3 original B&W Negatives.

"The plan did not succeed because there was not enough new or completed Wright houses in that postwar period to fill a whole issue. In preparation for it I did, however, photograph the Sturges house in Brentwood Heights..." Picturing Wright, 1994, Guerrero, p.96.

Author: Contributing Editors: Loughrey, Peter; Hines, Thomas S.; Escher, Frank; Cerio, Greg

Description: Published in conjunction with the sale of the George D. Sturges Residence (1939 - S.272). Volume includes history, drawings and photographs related to the Sturges Residence, as well as additional lots to be sold at auction on February 21, 2016. Essays by Hines, Escher and Cerio. "...Built of steel, concrete, brick and wood, the house is approached from the west at the rear just off the carport at the top of the hill. Visitors could either proceed around the encircling deck to enter through the living room on the eastern side or, as most did, through the small kitchen to the west. With less square footage than the Usonians in the Middle West, the house contains a relatively large living-dining room, two small bedrooms, and one bath on the main level. Tiny stairs lead up to the roof deck and down into the windowless basement, which Bridges used as a dark room and studio. In 1939, Wright had deputized his recent Taliesin disciple, John Lautner, to complete final details of the design and to supervise construction..." Thomas S. Hines, p.10.
