Jens Oliver Kraemer, an architecture student from Stuttgart, Germany has an interesting virtual tour of one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most engaging residential designs, the Ralph Jester House (1938). As stated on the site:
The Project for Ralph Jester at Palos Verdes, California, is the first residence design where Wright uses the circle to the fullest...The house was designed for a coastal desert climate and a client working in the movie business. The use of circles in any design poses obvious problems: How to deal with the interstices between the circles where they touch one another, how to deal with furnishing...( and how to get matching interior renderings in perspective view...)
This design was never built for its original client, however a version of it does exist on the campus of Taliesin West (brought to life by Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer.) It's a remarkable use of space and one that obviously fired the imagination of Jens.
One last thought--we have always been amused that Wright was the trend-setter for the idea of the "infinity pool"--a staple of the (once) popular TV show, the O.C.
