References[edit]

I want to add a references section to this but will go read now on how to do that. Moehong 23:04, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

OK, put in a few references, which should be enough for biographical info. I will add more specific references on the ultimate bungalow and gamble house pages when i can get to them. do you think i am on the right track here? should I include a picture of the brothers, or of their work? Moehong 23:14, 16 Jun 2005 (UTC)

You're definitely on the right track with this page. It looks great so far; it had kind of been on my list of things to do and I'm glad you got around to it. I'd love to see pictures of both the brothers and their work, if you can find ones that fit with Wikipedia:Image use policy, mostly meaning NOT A COPYRIGHT VIOLATION. Of course, Gamble House has no picture, so an image there would be of the utmost use, and maybe the brothers alone could go on this page. Great job! Philthecow 15:07, Jun 17, 2005 (UTC)

Thanks - I'll find some public-domain images I can use. The stuff from the USC archive may or may not be useable, I'll check the copyright restrictions on it; there may be some images from the Library of Congress archives that might work too. Moehong 12:28, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

The page was maliciously sabotaged earlier this week. How can I discard all of the saboteur's changes and return to the previous state? Moehong 19:38, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

I don't think that merging this page with the biography of C.S. Greene would be appropriate. There are certainly aspects of the brothers' collaboration, work, and significance which merit discussion separate from either of their biography pages.Akahige719 06:22, 19 July 2005 (UTC)

I am working on this very slowly ... Just made & added a map of all G&G properties using Platial. Moehong 17:09, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

wha?[edit]

The structure of the Greene & Greene house is essential not only to the immense feeling of security that such an overly-supported structure brings, but also accentuates the importance of the Arts & Crafts fundamentals in the Greene & Greene style. The visual importance of the aesthetic nature of the joints, pegs, and complex wood-work symbolizes the structure of the house, and coincides with the principles taught in the Manual Training School of their youth. The structure of the house is externalized, or exploded, rather than hidden in decoration. Each element of the structure asserts itself. This extravagance of support takes its origins from the decorative bracketing of Japanese structures. Every piece of the structure is absolutely essential to the overall horizontality.

What the hell does this mean and why is it in the article? It seems a bit out of context. 71.7.131.111 (talk) 20:51, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

Not only this part, but the whole naked mole rat part. Is that real? -Ima Jetstream- —Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.199.193.239 (talk) 18:54, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
