House hunting …

 Frank Lloyd Wright: How one low-income client tried, and failed, to work with the architect on a house. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

In later years, long after her dream of living in a house designed by the great man had finally been extinguished, Edith might have picked up that first single-line note from Wright—“We’ll see what can be done”—and retorted, “But nothing was done.” Pragmatism had been defeated by idealism.


Dave also sends along this: EDITH CARLSON HOUSE “BELOW ZERO” [1939].
And this: Below Zero.
