Check out this awesome Giant Spirograph! It was created by Nathan, who runs the DIY craft website HaHa Bird. Nathan’s oversized wooden version of the classic drawing toy measures eight feet across and uses sidewalk chalk to create those wonderfully familiar geometric patters on the pavement.

"The idea for this project came about at a craft show in December when a friend of mine had a little trouble with a laser-cut Spirograph we found. I teased her about her apparent lack of fine motor skills, then had the idea to make a Spirograph that only required gross motor skills. How big could I make a Spirograph?"

The project took Nathan about 6 months and cost roughly $150 to complete.

Frank Lloyd Wright (American, 1867-1959)

Pacific Dwelling for Mr. and Mrs. Morris, San Francisco, 1945

VC Morris commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to build a gallery on Maiden Lane in San Francisco. While working together, Wright proposed this mansion for Morris’ dramatic lot in San Francisco’s Seacliff neighborhood. Morris considered Wright’s first design too elaborate (top). He asked Wright to dial it back. The bottom image shows the toned-down version haha. It was never built; Morris’ Xanadu Gallery is Wright’s only San Francisco building.
