Frank Lloyd Wright in Pasadena

For sale in Pasadena, one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s concrete block houses after major renovation.  It would be a great fantasy to own this masterpiece but not one I would persue even if I had a spare $7 million.  First the great man was only 5′ 8″ and so egocentric that he scaled all his buildings for men of his stature.  At 6′ 2″ his buildings seem cramped.  The man was a master however as the pictures in this link show.

    Tacky adding a note to your own blog but I was looking at the picture and noting that the landscaping looks tacky and raw. Nothing like Wright might have done and not impressive to modern tastes.
