I’m fascinated by what people do with the spaces they live in. The architectural wonder, suburban tract home, artistic space, trailer park or sod house all hold a mysterious appeal. Here is one for your voyeuristic pleasure called “House on the Rock” built by Alex Jordan and Alex Jordan Jr.

Alex Jordan Jr’s. father was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright.
However Frank was not pleased with him and kicked him out of Taliesin (the communal art school that Frank was running at the time) As an affront to Taliesin Alex senior built this house in his own style high upon a rock formation just south of Franks house hence the name “The House On The Rock”

After Alex Jr. finished the house he started admitting sightseers and added many ground level exhibits of his collections. It takes all day to see everything and can only be described as eccentric, strange and very unusual They dont allow tripods but they do allow monopods, which I had to use for just about every shot as it is quite dark in this place
