    But Farnsworth was notoriously far over budget

    C’mon, let’s be real. For you, the Farnsworth House is always about exuberance — just as much as Disney Hall. Leave the stock market out of it. But if we must, perhaps it’s time to contemplate co-housing instead.

    Hm. If I had to chose a word for the Farnsworth House it would not be “exuberance.” It would more likely be “contemplative.” Ie, it gives a sense of contentment more than happiness.

    And BWChicago, yes, it was over budget, but then, not a bad lasting investment. Thanks for writing.
