Wright created a masterpiece creation nestled in a fantastic wooded area of Kirkwood! It is fascinating to see how he planned every aspect of life inThe the building - form, fit, *and* function! The shock comes when one tours the property and thinks of questions like, .. "where would we put a television'? "Why is there no storage?" - We... 更多
It's not Falling water...it's not even the Dana Thomas House or Robie House, but it's St. Louis's only FLW house that's open for public tours and any FLW fan will enjoy it.
