I studied at the FLW Foundation. Because of this I was able to spend 6 hours at the house talking to the Foundation Manager. He had worked on the building as a 16 year old kid, and had worked there ever since. He stated that there were no structural problems for 20 years. Then, because of the extreme winters, the house need major repairs. This is not unusual but commonplace for any building after 20 to 30 years. Yes, you are correct is saying that he was innovative, but wrong in implying that the inovation was faulty. I am glad that you acknowledge that the Johnson Wax office building did not collapse.
