Waverly Place House, Horty Elving and Associates, Minneapolis, 1970.
Horty Elving and Associates was formed in 1955 by Tom Horty, Bertil Fasth, and Edward Hillstrom, after variously studying in the United States and Sweden, under Frank Lloyd Wright, Eliel Saarinen and others. The practice specialized in healthcare projects—a field in which they were prolific even after Horty died in 2011—leading to them being acquired by Wold Architects and Engineers in 2014. However, their best creative output is this striking house in the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis, and their own small office building in the nearby downtown.
The muscular massing and rectilinear composition of the Waverly Place House is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s neo-Mayan projects such as La Miniature (Millard House) of 1923, and Eliel Saarinen projects like the Cranbrook Academy of Art (1942). The metal and timber cladding, however, is more in tune with Case Study Houses such as Pierre Koenig’s Stahl House in Los Angeles (1960). The defensive and partly subterranean character of the house also recalls the Creak Vean House (1956) and Skybreak House (1966) by Team 4—the first practice of Norman Foster and Richard Rogers, a collaboration with Wendy Cheesman and Su Brumwell, who would become the first wives of Foster and Rogers respectively.
Horty Elving’s offices are a similarly muscular composition, but of steel and concrete, rather than steel and timber. The exposed steel structure is likely a nod to Mies van der Rohe’s IIT Crown Hall (1956) and Neue Galerie in Berlin (1968). #article & #photographs#williamtozer#hortyelvingandassociates#hortyelving#architects#minneapolis#concrete#glass#timber#wood#steel#courtyard#house#modernism#modern#architecture
Following a break, Morris Day and members of The Time joined Prince and the band for the unreleased Time tune, "Dance To The Beat" (a fast rockabilly tune in the style of "Horny Toad") with Prince interjecting, "I didn't like that. Wait a minute. Play something y'all know how to play." :
The song "The Stick" followed, with Prince teasing Day by asking, "Can you still play the drums?", Indeed he could, as Day played a monster drum solo during the set's finale, "Partyup.":
