    and innovative, but whatever it was 50 years ago, it's stale now. There's no security rooms, or internet conduit. I'd bet my bottom dollar that the walls are cracking and unstable.There's no A/c ducting if people are adding a/c units on the porches. 50 year old wiring is probably losing it's insulation; junction boxes need to be examined. These are just a few of what are probably left of its "innovations." Falling Water, Frank LoydWright's "innovative " home in Pennsyvania, was just renovated for upwards of $6 million. That is a beautiful place. This monstrosity, like many monuments in Israel, is venerated because it's different. different doesn't make it special UGLY is ugly.It is an eyesore, and should be razed.
