Frank Lloyd Wright's Massaro House

Fifty-odd years ago Frank Loyd Wright designed a house in upstate New York on a rock protruding into a lake . It was never built. Now, Wright archivist and architect Thomas Heinz has been commissioned to have the building built, based only on the five pencil drawings produced by Wright in the fifties. Story here.

To produce the house, Heinz chose to use the same CAD programme that I use, ArchiCAD. Graphisoft, the company that produces ArchiCAD, have put together a fascinating 1-hour presentation with Heinz explaining the design and building process, which you can find here. You will need broadband to download the presentation (it's 92MB!), but well worth it! A documentary on the project is on its way.

Linked presentation here.
