You may remember I posted here about the gorgeous conservatory designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Darwin Martin’s estate in Buffalo. After being demolished, it has recently been rebuilt. If you’re interested, you can read more about it in this month’s Garden Design, in an article written by no other than fellow Ranter Amy Stewart.
As Jim/Art of Gardening relates in his post, Amy’s article is fascinating because it includes the correspondence between Wright and Martin, who had one of those great dysfunctional relationships that can only happen between architect and client, and that can only rise to such heights when the architect in question is one of our favorite egomaniacal geniuses.
I can’t link to the article, but it’s in the May GD. (Sorry, I know you can’t read it from the tiny image above.)
P.S. Buffalo gardens have been making the rounds in many garden magazines lately, largely because of all the visits we got last summer during Garden Walk. There is a six-page spread on a Buffalo garden in the May/June Garden Gate, as well. Again, no linkie! These guys don’t put their stuff online.Posted by Elizabeth Licata on April 30, 2008 at 1:00 pm, in the category Designs, Tricks, and Schemes, Real Gardens.
