Horace Trumbauer, Whitemarsh Hall (Wyndmoor, PA: under construction, 1917.02.07).
another space and time
...a schematic plan of Whitemarsh Hall, the quondam "American Versailles." Just above the Grand Ballroom is the second floor plan of my own house (at the same scale), which would have fit quite easily within the Grand Ballroom. It turns out the footprint of my house isn't all that much larger than the "Great Isfahan".

Is there an architecture of fuzzy logic? And is there an architecture of fussy logic? Is there something fuzzy about what Robertson said and is there something fussy about what Sink said? Could I make an argument as to the distinction in just the books I've been reading lately?
