Although Cincinnati Form Follows Function (an organization for enthusiasts of Modern design and architecture called CF3 for short) has only been in existence since 2004, it's already come up with a potentially famous photograph of the city. It’s a panorama taken from Bellevue Hill Park in Clifton Heights.
And the success of it gives CF3 something special to celebrate at that very park this Saturday at 6 p.m., when it holds a cookout, Modernism-related swap meet and rare screening of historic footage from the construction of a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Modernist home in Amberley.
This is believed to be the only documentation of construction of a Wright home ever made.
Newcomers are being eagerly welcomed to the free event but should bring their own food — CF3 wants more members and supporters. Those interested in attending should respond to an e-vite on the www.cf3.org Web site.
