hey luis you’re ruining a perfect picture
A Usonian home, exploded and suspended to show its parts and systems that was featured in the Frank Lloyd Wright: Organic Architecture for the 21st Century special exhibit earlier this year at Milwaukee Art Museum. The Usonians reveal a mind very much attuned to technological advances and budget limitations of average Americans. Some of the earliest radiant floor heating, for example, went into the Usonians. No ductwork, no drafts, high efficiency. The early Usonians, designed amid the Depression when skilled labor was cheap, had supporting walls of bricks and mortar. By 1949, when the economy boomed and skilled labor costs climbed, he switched to a concrete block design to bring down costs, and he worked on component designs that allowed big pieces of the homes to be manufactured cheaply off-site. It’s true that the Usonians did not catch on as Wright had hoped, for reasons ranging from inflexible building codes to complexities of finance to price competition from America’s Levittown-style builder/contractors. But these were not pie-in-the-sky houses. They worked.
