|Discussion||Crooks House Commentary
"While privacy is accomplished by isolation in the surrounding tract houses, the Crooks House derives its privacy by treating the formal gestures as fragments of a larger organization, thereby setting up a dependence of object and landscape. Rather than a single center, a succession of centers is produced both in the building and in the landscape. These centers are linked and can be understood as a spatial continuum."
