If you follow Greene & Greene you are familiar with the Thorsen House.
A masterpiece of the American Arts and Crafts movement, the William R. Thorsen house in Berkeley, California (1909), was the last of the masterfully crafted ‘ultimate bungalows’ designed and furnished by renowned architects Charles and Henry Greene.....

Dwell magazine has created a competition called "Rethinking Preservation" that will donate $10,000 to a worthy preservation organization. A panel of judges will select the winner from the top ten projects with the most votes. There is a huge list of worthy projects in the competition so the Thorsen House will need your support.
