|Discussion||Boomer Residence Commentary
"This house for a single person, which Wright designated a 'mountain cottage,' is compacted into two stories around a central chimney flue. It is of desert rubblestone wall with some horizontal wood sheathing, notably in the bedroom balcony. It looks north, away from the desert sun."
William Allin Storrer. The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright: A Complete Catalog. project 361.
The Creator's Words
"The architect must be the most comprehensive of all the masters, most comprehensive of all the human beings on earth. His work, the thing that is entrusted to him by way of his virtue, is the most broad of all."
"Making away with the box both in plan and elevation new became fundamental to my work. That opened the way for feeling the space within as the Reality of all true modern building....These structures now bear the message of this liberation of space to space."
Frank Lloyd Wright. from Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer and Gerald Nordland, ed. Frank Lloyd Wright: In the Realm of Ideas. p8, 19.
