Eric Lloyd Wright stands in a clearing in the Malibu mountains, describing a house he is building. It will rise from the ground like an extension of rock. Earth-colored, it will blend with brush and stone nearby. Inside will be a continuous flow of space, an expanse of glass wall, a monumental two-story fireplace and a trickling stream of water.

With none of the debate that marked the last time they dealt with the issue, West Hollywood's City Council on Tuesday approved the sale of the landmark home and architecture studio of the late Lloyd Wright to a financial planning firm. By a 4-1 vote, the council overturned a Planning Commission recommendation that would have prevented Eric Lloyd Wright, the son of Lloyd Wright and grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright, from selling the property to financial planners Gail Gordon Kamer and Peggi Hager.

Last May, the towering Mayan-style fountain at UC Santa Barbara's Art Museum, designed by Lloyd Wright, Frank Lloyd Wright's son, was to be demolished for lack of space. "Eric Lloyd Wright, Lloyd's son, called me and said, 'If anybody can save it, you can,' " says Mal Damerst, an L.A. indie record producer and president of the Wrightian Architectural Assn. Trouble was, Damerst, blinded by diabetes, had to "see" the fountain by feel.

With almost 800 wedding ceremonies performed annually, many of the nearly 400,000 visitors each year to the Lloyd Wright Wayfarer's Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes have been known to wait two hours before getting a peek. So a recent two-week closure of the chapel caused an understandable frisson of disappointment. For the first time since it opened on Mother's Day, 1951, the nearly all-glass church shut down for a full restoration.

Through architect Eric Lloyd Wright (grandson of Frank Lloyd Wright and son of Lloyd Wright), we are trying to bring good architecture down to a level of affordability by the masses. Throughout Frank Lloyd Wright's life, he was trying to do the same thing. Wright's four Los Angeles concrete-block homes of 1923-24 were one example of his trying to lower the cost of good architecture. We invite people interested in trying to build modest-cost Wrightian architecture to join our nonprofit, no-dues group.
