As someone who lives in Phoenix, the home of a number of FLW masterpieces and Taliesin creations, this very scenario has been plaguing me for the past many months. First and foremost, anybody who has lived in Phoenix for some time and seen the iconic masonry on buildings such as the Biltmore or Grady Gammage should know a FLW when they see one. At least, they should suspect. I am all of 20 years old, albeit a Phoenix native, and it is such a joke to me that a) the developers would not have known ahead of time the history of the house, b) the name of the architect was not stated in any fashion during the transaction, and c) that it's not just the most obvious thing. This building positively screams FLW, sorry.
