A spectacular round house in Sarasota, Florida:
The house was designed in 1960 by architect Jack West, a prominent member of the Sarasota School of Architecture, for artist Hilton Leech.
A master in the round architecturally of course should include the best of architecture which honestly has to offer none quite so good at it as Bruce Goff.
Here’s a pic on Flickr showing the house closer up:
Sadly, this house is no longer visible to the neighbors (me) because it’s now surrounded by tall fences and/or hedging. Fortunately, there is another spectacular round house on Quail Drive in Sarasota. I couldn’t find any images online but it’s visible on Google Earth.
