Is that a nod to Lou Kahn's Salk Institute in the last photo?

;) If anything, the Sak Institute is a nod to the Allahambra, circa 1230-1400: or to the Romans, for example, Hadrian's Villa c. 230 AD

Sign a petition to protect the Villa from becoming a neighbor to a landfill!

Great article. Knew that cottage gardens were favored by the Arts and Crafts movement, but not about the other features. Few things as pretty as a cottage garden in bloom.
