Luxury Barndominiums are becoming a thing. Turning a barn into living space. I came across this one on a backwoods drive in KY.

This is a very cool house, but a great example of an architect who forgot the client comes first. Wright was a short man and the ceilings in this house are very low. He also built the house where he wanted; not where the client wanted.
Yep. I've been to that one.

He would put the house where the house looked the best when standing outside looking at it rather than where you get the best view when looking out from inside the house.

Still very cool for a house built in the 30s.

This condominium buildng, designed by nationally prominent firm Architect Tonica, was made famous by being in the opening credits of Miami Vice and 30-40 years later still looks pretty cool.
