Last week's newsletter had an unfortunate error when it was sent out. The news item on the Wright wood scale models mentioned Farnsworth House, which is by Mies van der Rohe. The Frank Lloyd Wright models offered are Unity Temple, the First Jacobs House, Guggenheim Museum, and SC Johnson Wax Administration Building. You can read the corrected item here.
Happy 154th Birthday Mr. Wright!
