Cruising the internet, looking for an image of the Krier house in Seaside FL (referenced by an architect--is there such a house?), I came across this interesting blog (Hi, John!). Does anyoknow where I could find a photo of this house, or any house by Krier?

Classical, traditional architecture has been impressing people for the last four Millennia. It stood the passage of time very well.
All species need food and shelter to thrive. Humans channeled the need for shelter into architecture – the art form.
A great architect once said to a group of his students “Architecture is the art, which everybody sees. Regardless of how beautiful or ugly the building is it will stay in-place for a long time. Beware of what you design!”
Very rarely ugly can turn into beautiful – the Eiffel Tower.
Ageless, classic design confirmed by the centuries past always has had and will have influence on generations of architects.
In my search for decorative, practical and functional artworks (gates, furniture, lamps, etc) I came across a great WEB site www.mansionmasters.com. They custom make all wrought iron, bronze and glass architectural artwork. It is truly the highest-end, hand made artwork. Worth visiting.
