NATHAN G. MOORE HOUSE ~ Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect (1895)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Nathan G. Moore House also known as the Moore-Dugal Residence is a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The house was built one block south of Wright's home and studio in Oak Park, Illinois. It was originally completed in 1895 in the Tudor Revival style at the request of client Nathan Moore. Wright obliged his client's wishes, but long after disliked the house for its adherence to historical styles. A 1922 fire gave Wright the opportunity to redesign the house. The structure was completely rebuilt above the first floor in a manner in keeping with Wright's other works of the late 1910s and early 1920s. While the new design stayed evocative of Tudor architecture, the house was heavily ornamented by details of Sullivanesque, Mayan, and other exotic origins. Wright’s second scheme remains largely intact today and the house continues to be a private residence despite a brief period as a tour home.

I like this for a number of reasons - the angle of view, the time of day, and the use of foliage to give texture to "dead space" in the sky. As an artist, Marlene, you are astute and creative. Like & Fave!
