Who gives a shiat? It's an old house that some guy who invented flying once lived in. Big whoop

Did monkey-face Jesus painting restoration teach us NOTHING?

It did. Restoration has begun.

I_Love_Cheesecake: In retrospect, steps should have been taken long ago, by Wright's heirs and by city officials, to avoid all this.

Damn straight. What a crime it would be to lose this home. It's not the same as the Taleban blowing up the Bamiyan Buddha statutes, but it's just as infuriating and heartbreaking to those who love great art/architecture.

Great. You people do understand that the stupid house is just a red herring, don't you? The real problem here is trees. They're everywhere, on everyone's land. They don't pay rent, they don't pay taxes. And some of them have been doing it for 50 to 100 years! That's why I cheer whenever a developer comes in and clear cuts a former section of park, or absolutely levels every square inch of a plot. That will teach those farking trees. Who needs em!

Oh, no you don't. You pick it back up this instant and take it back to Fox Nation where you found it.

Who cares about Frank Lloyd Wright. Little do you guys know that Samuel Pierpont Langley was really closer to building the first sustained flight aircraft.

That's a pretty groovy design.  But is it built out of cinder block?  I think it would be even cooler covered with adobe.
Watch me ruin the architects vision!

Thank Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan that this house was not located in Houston. It would be long gone by now.

CygnusDarius: As an architect, all I can say is this:

Developers can be uncaring, petty beings.

Bulldozing a Frank Lloyd Wright house is to architecture as a Darwin award recipient dying is to the gene pool.

I just wanted to say that his falling water house is so beautiful inside and out that it causes me physical pain to be unable to own/live in it.

BFD. Ugly house. If you own the property, do what you want. No one even knew about this thing but now it must be "saved"???
