It’s probably hard to tell from my usual posts, but I know a couple of things about architecture. Which is sort of pathetic, really, since I’ve got an actual degree in architecture. But that’s neither here nor there.
Prairie style architecture, according to this link*, is “marked by its integration with the surrounding landscape, horizontal lines, flat…roofs…, and restraint in the use of decoration.” So it’s no wonder that this scene seemed to be a fine example!
*WARNING: if you go to the link, be prepared for that very annoying white-text-on-black-background that is nearly impossible to read.
Thanks for hanging in for the run of photos from the Cliffhouse Project. I’ve been fascinated by this place since it was just a random urban ruin, and am excited that it’s got someone who loves it and who has a vision for its future.
Stick around and I bet you’ll see more photos from here, as it evolves into its new life.
