CINEMA SAN DIEGO (1905)
   
Date: 1905

Title: Cinema San Diego Project, San Diego, California (1905 - FLLW #0517).

Description: Photograph of original drawing in the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives. Perspective drawing of the Cinema’s street elevation. Hand written text: "C.1905." Lower left: "0517.01." But there seems to be uncertainty as to the actual date of this project. The illustration hint at Midway Gardens (1913). Not only do the triangles and squares in the facade hint at Midway Gardens, but so do the spheres. This illustration is published in Frank Lloyd Wright Monograph 1902-1906, Pfeiffer, 1987, p.183, and Wright, 1885-1916, Pfeiffer, 2011, p.505. What adds to the confusion is a second rendering of the Cinema by Louis Rasmussen (1859 - after 1930). Rasmussen regularly assisted Adler and Sullivan, and worked with Frank Lloyd Wright on many occasions. He rendered the Abraham Lincoln Center, published in The Architectural Review, June 1900, p.72. In 1905, he illustrated a perspective of the Frank L. Smith Bank (1905). According to Van Zanten, he also illustrated other projects for Wright during that time period including the San Diego Cinema. Marion Mahony Reconsidered, Van Zanten, 2011, p.54. Rasmussen’s illustration of the Cinema is similar, but with changes. The triangles along the top of the facade are a little more subtle, and the squares just above the entrance are gone, as are the spheres. In their place are two "Sprite" like figures, not human in form, but geometric. Could these be a foreshadowing... of Midway Gardens? This second illustration is numbered 0517.02, is published in Frank Lloyd Wright In His Renderings 1887-1959, Pfeiffer, 1984, Fig.33. A more complete version of the illustration is published in Wright, 1885-1916, Pfeiffer, 2011, p.506. It includes text at the top and bottom. Text hand written top left of the illustration: "Movie Picture Theatre. 1897. FLW." Signed center right: "L. R." Text hand written at the bottom left: "0517.02. 1897 Perspective by Louis Rasmussen." Text hand written at the bottom right: "San Diego - 190(?)." Text illustrated bottom left" Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect. (Hand written:) 1897." In Wright, 1885-1916, 2011, Pfeiffer has reconsidered and placed the date closer to 1915, due to the Automobile and "Sprite" in this second rendering (0517.02). Note: We found automobiles manufactured in 1905, similar to the illustration.

Description: Although these Fiberthin Air House variations are not credited to Frank Lloyd Wright, in 1956-7 Wright designed four variations of Fiberthin Air Houses for the U. S. Rubber Company. Caption: "Nylon Airhouses pop up on a university campus in Kentucky. Made of U. S. Rubber Company’s Fiberthin, a vinyl-covered nylon fabric four times as strong as waterproof canvas yet 40% lighter in weight, domelike houses are kept up by air, pumped in by small blowers. They are anchored at base by ballast ring of sand or water. Already catching on for industrial and military use, they are being developed as vacation homes for around $1,000 for a 20-foot-diameter size." Original cover price 25c.

Description: "Airhouse. Cosi e stata chiamata questa casa-pallone che fu disegnata da Frank Lloyd Wright, e che e stata di recente esposta a New York, alla International Home Exposition. E formata da due cupole in tessuto plastico -- un tssuto leggerissimo e molto resitent, il "fiberthin" prodotto dalla United States Rubber Company -- le cupole, gonfiate come palloni, si reggono per la semplice pressione dell'aria interna, pressione mantenuta costante da una pompa elettrica. Il perimetro delle cupole e tenuto aderente al suola da un tubo circolare pieno di sabbia o acqua... Come case, sono un progetto avveniristico: cio che stupisce non e tanto l'abitare in un "pallone frenato" -- quantyo l'abitarvi con i mobili di oggi -- le stoffe, le sedie, i frigoriferi, i va si di fiori..." (Translation:) "Airhouse. So it was called this house balloon that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and was recently exhibited in New York at the International Home Exposition. It is made up of two plastic fabric domes - a lightweight and very resistant, fiberthin produced by the United States Rubber Company - domes, inflated as balloons, stands by simple internal air pressure, constant pressure maintained by an electric pump. The perimeter of the domes is kept adhering to the soil by a circular tube full of sand or water... As houses, it is a futuristic project: what is surprising not so much to live in a "restrained balloon" - as you live with today's furniture - fabrics, chairs, fridges, flowers...

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Last Dream. Just before he died, America’s most exciting architect designed this ‘perfect city of tomorrow’ (which can be built today). A dream nurtured by Frank Lloyd Wright for more than 40 years – to build a perfect city – sprang to reality only a few months before the great architect’s death in April 1959. It was the last commission Wright accepted, the structure he hoped would stand on day as his most enduring testament... Whether or not this vision of a perfect city ever will be translated into concrete and steel, it stands as the last and most brilliant thrust of a great imagination." The American Weekly was a Sunday newspaper magazine published from 1896 until 1966.

Wright revived the design in 1944 for Gerald Loeb "Hilltop House." Wright and his apprentices worked on the model in 1946, and it was featured in the June 1946 issue of Architectural Forum. The model was then exhibited in New York at the Museum of Modern Art, and subsequently published in the September 1946 issue of Popular Mechanics. The design for the Loeb Residence was based on the Ralph Jester home. The home was never built, and the design was utilized for the Gerald Loeb Residence. The design was utilized again for the Dr. Paul V. Palmer Residence (project 1947) in Phoenix, Arizona, but again, remained unbuilt. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer and his father resurrected the original Jester design and built the home on the grounds of Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona in 1974. Similar image published in "Picturing Wright" Guerrero, 1994, p.92. Caption: "From blueprints to models to full-scale construction, some type of building was always in progress at Taliesin. Apprentice John de Koven Hill labors over a model in 1940 (sic). It was the Jester (sic) house, destined for the MoMA show. The model was started at Taliesin, transported to Taliesin West where it was finished. Photographed at Taliesin, Spring Green, by Pedro E. Guerrero.

Title: J. L. Smith General Plan Blueprint 1955 (Project)

Description: "House For Mr. & Mrs. J. L. Smith. Kane County, Illinois. Frank Lloyd Wright Architect. Frank Lloyd Wright, Jan 20 / 55. General Plan. Scale 1/4" = 1' - 0"." The home is built into a hillside and faces Southwest. The elevation at the South corner of the Terrace is 92 feet. The elevation of the North corner of the Gun shop is 110 feet, a change of 18 feet. As in other Usonian Automatic homes, these blocks are 1' x 2' in size, and the floor plan is designed in 2' x 2' modules. The home is built on two levels. As you drive up to the graveled forecourt, and park in the Carport, a covered walk leads to the Entrance which is along the back of the house. The Lanai is on the right, the Gun Shop is embedded into the hillside. Double doors lead to the Entryway which is on the upper level. The Gallery on the right leads to two Bedrooms, the Bath, and a thin passageway leading down five stairs to the Workspace on the lower level. As you walk down the Loggia to the left, there are built-in bookshelves on the left, low built-in cabinets on the right. The wall on the right side is open, creating the Loggia. At the end, five stairs lead down to the Living Room. The bookshelves that cover the right side of the Loggia wrap around the end, then continue into the Living room and rap around two additional walls. The Southwest side of the Living room has four sets of tall thin floor-to-ceiling doors that open outward to the Terrace. Each door is 2' x 10' creating 2' x 4' sets, between 2' wide columns. The height of the ceiling above the upper level is 7' 6" and is 10' above the lower level. A built-in planter borders the stairs that lead down from the Terrace. From the Entry, as you turn right, the Gallery leads to the Bath and two Bedrooms. Built-in cabinets are on the right side. Both Bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling corner sets of doors. When closed they create the corner of the room. When they are opened outward, the corner is open. The smaller Bedroom set has one door that is 2' wide, the other is 1' wide. The larger Bedroom set are both 2' wide. The roof extends outward above the doors sheltering the openings. There is a large built-in planter box just outside the larger bedroom. There are handwritten notes in pencil. Shop: "Gun" is crossed out and replaced with "Work." "To wk in winter. Shop must be comfortable. Heat Ste. No Sun in afternoon. Stairway to top of hill. Gallery: For air to come in > Windows open. (Open windows in Blocks.) Large Bedroom: Open windows. Small Bedroom: Open windows. Cross ventilation. Workspace: Built in oven + Range." The Gun Shop was moved to the North corner of the home in the floor plans published in "Frank Lloyd Wright, Complete Works 1943-1959"See Wright Study on J. L. Smith Residence Project.

SNOW FLAKE MOTEL (1955)
   




Date: Circa 1955

Title: Snow Flake Motel, Project Circa 1955. Aerial perspective of Snow Flake Motel.

Description: Text bottom left corner, "Snow Flake." Red Square. Copy photograph of illustration. Published in "The Art of Frank Lloyd Wright, Krasl Art Center," Scott Elliot, 1994. Caption: "Aerial perspective of Snow Flake Motel, St. Joseph, Michigan, Ca. 1955. Pencil and pastel on brown tissue, 36 x 60 inches." In a recent e-mail from Scott Elliott, "Mrs. Sarkesian, the wife of the original client, confirmed that it (the drawing) was done in 1955. It's sometimes hard to tell who the actual draughtsman was by the mid 50s. Could be Peterson or Howe. Sometimes Wright just added trees, foliage and other atmospherics. Of course, he would have considered it entirely his, and rightly so. I happen to think this one could be all or mostly by his hand." From 2006: According to Scott Elliott: "(He) believes the Snowflake Motel in Lincoln Township was designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, contrary to what most people think. Many people believe the building was designed around 1960 by William Wesley Peters of Taliesin Associates. Peters was Wright's son-in-law and a draftsman for Wright. But Elliott has a detailed drawing from Wright's office showing the Snowflake Motel, and said that drawing was completed around 1955. Elliott said Sahig and
Christina Sarkisian, the original owners of the Snowflake, approached Wright around 1955 to design the motel. A lack of financing delayed the project until the early 1960s, he said. Wright died in 1959.... Elliott... said he bought the drawing from one of the Snowflake owners in the late 1980s or early 1990s. The owner told him the Sarkisians had first approached Wright's office around 1955, and that's when the drawing was made." As far as absolutely unquestionable proof, I don't have that," Elliott said. "It's what I would say is a very reliable oral history."Elliott said it's likely that Peters took credit for the design when he completed the commission. Peters may have been the original draftsman, though Elliott said he thinks it's "far more likely" that chief draftsman Jack Howe did that work. Peters' later drawings of the building are marked differently, and the drawing is "clearly from an earlier period," Elliott said."I believe absolutely certainly that this is an original Wright concept and design," Elliott said. "But even if all this weren't true … the concept, the design is so good and so pure in terms of following Wright's principles and ideas. There isn't an idea anywhere (in the design) that doesn't stem from Wright's design philosophy." The Herald Palladium, St. Joseph, Michigan, William F. Ast III, January 21, 2006. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer does not list the Snow Flake Motel in "Frank Lloyd Wright, Complete Works 1943-1959," 2009.

VIGO SUNDT RESIDENCE, MADISON, WISC (1941)
   
Date: 1941

Title: Design for the Vigo Sundt Residence (Project 1941).

Description: Caption on verso: "Frank Lloyd Wright used the Hexagon in his design of the Vigo Sundt House in Madison, Wis. This utilization of geometry in 1941 was because Wright believed 60-degree angles were 'more suited' to humans." Stamped on Verso: "Sep 24 1967." The first home Wright designed and built utilizing the hexagonal "honeycomb" design was the Hanna Residence (S.235 1936). This was a year after Fallingwater, the same year Wright designed the Herbert Jacobs Residence, his first Usonian home, and the S.C. Johnson & Son Administration Building. Other homes utilizing the hexagon design included the Sidney Bazett Residence (S.259 1939), the Stevens Residence (Auldbrass, S.256 1940), and the Stuart Richardson Residence (S.282 1940). Others were designed, but were never completed. This home is very similar to the Richardson Residence. Obtained from the archives of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright At The University of Florida (Soft Cover) (Published by Library Press at University of Florida)

Author: Treister, Kenneth

Description: Kenneth Treister, an architectural student in the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity at Florida University, chronicles his involvement and struggles attempting to approve the plans of the Wright designed Fraternity House. "Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the world's greatest contemporary architects. While Fallingwater is his best-known work, Wright designed over 1,000 buildings during his lifetime. Yet none of the three fraternity houses he planned during his career, in 1934, 1941, and 1952 were ever built. This book chronicles the genesis, development, and ultimate abandonment of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity house Wright created for students of the University of Florida, as told by a then-architecture student and member of the ZBT fraternity who assisted Wright. Containing detailed prints of Wright's drawings for all three planned fraternity houses in addition to his completed buildings at Florida Southern College, Frank Lloyd Wright at the University of Florida offers a fascinating view into Wright's frustrating struggles to complete these projects."
