Looks like the comments are running predominately against. glb123 nails it – “He might have been a great architect, but he was a terrible structural engineer!!”.
I visited Taliesin in Spring Green, WI earlier this spring. At the beginning of the tour I remarked to the docent that it seemed that the facility was in need of millions of dollars of repair work. At the end of the tour I upped my estimate to *tens* of millions of dollars. I found it interesting that the caretakers of the property have to remove all of the furniture (in the main wing at least… I think) every winter as the house is so porous. In his bedroom, you can see inch thick gaps underneath doors where Frank’s precious stone has settled. They are also battling gopher infestations which doesn’t help with the foundation. He sacrificed quite a bit in order to use stone throughout.
The visually low profile is stunning.
