The High Medieval suit-of-armor in image 45 is an inspired touch. On loan from the great Higgins Armory presumably?https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/1612-Norristown-Rd_Ambler_PA_19002_M30313-43079

Then: wait for it, wait for it. . .
In thinking through the utter madness behind of this awful house, I'm wondering how any of this got past the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Wright's work is copyrighted. This fact has lead to a well-documented dispute over the inappropriate execution of an authentic Wright design constructed posthumously on its intended site.They somehow misspelled "insult" as "homage".
The Vessel is really a perfect name for the sixteen-story monument nestled in the midst of the now complete “neighborhood” (read: real estate scheme) of Hudson Yards, New York City. Designed by Thomas Heatherwick, one of architecture’s premier grifters, a man who should be banned internationally from using the term “parti,” the Vessel is composed of 154 flights of stairs, 2,500 steps, and 80 landings. Apparently the architect drew inspiration from an early experience with, to nobody’s surprise, an old staircase. The depth of architectural thinking at work here makes a kiddie-pool seem oceanic.
