Historic Homes DESIGN COPELAND HOUSE Green completed this house in 1961, then was rehired for an addition in 1986, and again in 1999 to assist with interiors. MODERN MASTER 32 ATLANTA MAGAZINE’S HOME WINTER 2017 ATLANTA’S FORGOTTEN PHO T OGRAPHY : JEFF HERR B Back in 1958, a Georgia Tech dropout named Robert Green sent his drawings to Taliesin West, architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and school outside Phoenix. Built of indigenous stones and topped by beautiful wood framing and translucent canvas, the desert masterpiece was Green’s favorite Wright building—literally the subject of his dreams. At Tech, Green had been disenchanted with the starker, glassy build-ings of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe but was enthralled when he discovered Wright in the School of Architecture library. Then 23, he was granted a meeting with the 90-year-old Wright, whose 150th birth anniversary was celebrated this year.
