SAMUEL FREEMAN RESIDENCE (1923 - S.216)
   
Date: Circa 1925

Title: Samuel and Harriet Freeman Residence Circa 1925. (1923 - S.216).

Description: Viewed from the Northwest. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1923, construction was supervised by Wright’s son, Lloyd Wright. A two-story home, the Entrance, Living Room, Balcony and Kitchen are on the main floor. The lower level includes two Bedrooms, Lounge, Bath and Storage. Both the West and East corners of the South elevation are formed by mitered glass corners that run the full length of two floors. This was Wright’s first use of mitered glass corners. Wright utilized this concept again in 1935 when he designed Fallingwater. Each textile block was 16" x 16". Wright continued the 16" measurement in the details of the design. Some blocks were perforated, glass was added, allowing additional light in, creating patters of light on the interior. The garage is on the left, the entrance is behind the garage, the Living Room is to the right. A planter box sits to the left of the garage, a pool is to the right.

Title: Samuel Freeman House Concrete Block, 2004 (1923 - S.216). 

Description: The Samuel and Harriet Freeman House is one of the four textile-block houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in California.  During construction, dirt was mixed in with the concrete to give it a more natural look but the compound proved to be unstable.  Wright was out of the country at the time working on the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.  He dispatched his associate, Rudolf Schindler to come up with a solution.  Schindler filled the gaps in the textile blocks with mortar as a means to stabilize them, however the changes compromised the design aesthetic and infuriated Wright.  Schindler's "transgressions" brought about the end of their relationship.  In 1986, the house which the Freemans lived in for 61 years was given to the University of Southern California School of Architecture.  The house was badly damaged by the Northridge Earthquake in 1994.  The home is under going a major restoration.  This block is poured from the original mold for the restoration. Two blocks.

Title: Saving Wright. The Freeman House and The Preservation of Meaning, Materials, and Modernity (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by W. W. Norton &Company, New York, London)

Author: Chusid, Jeffrey M.

Description: "Saving Wright chronicles the ongoing struggle to save Wright’s Freeman House in the Hollywood Hills, the setting for fascinating people and events but deeply flawed from the time it was built ninety-five years ago. The Freeman House was an experiment born out of Frank Lloyd Wright’s polemical vision of a new kind of architecture for the middle class, for modern America, and, in particular, for the Los Angeles foothills. Its design and construction were difficult, thus, along with many poor decisions, planting within a beautiful work of architecture the seeds of its own destruction." (Publisher’s description.) Original list price $55.00. (First Edition)
