Wikification[edit]

Michael (Mkrupnic)... About the Wikification of the Sim Van der Ryn page: No big quibble, but I wonder if putting internal links to the names of fairly small (& sometimes defunct) institutes like Farallones has much point. Even Van der Ryn's current environmental design institute, while important and pertinent to the architect's story and to his professional associates, may never make so large a public splash that anyone would write a page about it.

What do you think? I'm curious.

J.R.

Internal Links[edit]

You are probably right. To be honest i know little about the subject matter and came accross it randomly. I often tend to over-wikify. I'll remove the 2 dead links. Thanks for the heads up. -Mkrupnic 18:27, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Photos of larger building projects[edit]

I think this article would be much improved if - besides the small, rural schoolhouse now included - some of his larger projects were shown. The visual element is so natural and central to architecture, afterall. Joel Russ 14:46, 26 October 2007 (UTC)
