Frank Lloyd Wright: Yodoko Guest House 4

I find it interesting to see people 'using' spaces in such a building. It's still a functioning place, not just a museum piece. Another example, which I didn't get a picture of unfortunately, is the kitchen area for the staff (it's off-limits to the public). It has modern kitchen equipment fitted inside, but it's still within the space designed by Wright; not in a separate structure.

That's it from this building for now, I hope to return to get better shots at some point!

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

It looks like Frank Lloyd Wright even took into consideration how the light would light up the room. You both did a good job!

I too love the way older buildings continue to be used - will show you some soon from the Arts Centre, which was the university, is now the Arts Centre and was built in the 1890's.
Lovely capture, the light is great!

It was a nice idea to show how the space is used in the project, Architects imagine many things will happen and try to play many rolls as possible when designing a project but you never know what will happen with the passage of time, something things go on as expected, sometimes the unexpected occurs.

@Alfredo J. Martiz J.: Yes Alfredo - I would imagine there must be opposing desires for an architect - "I want to see my work be used and be useful", versus "Don't mess around with what I've done! It's beautiful!"

Ha! Looks like she's waiting for the calculator to do something unexpected. Wonderful moment in time shot D!
