I think they refer to those houses as Frank Lloyd Wrong.

    Yeah, that's one downside with great distinction: hard to hide it.  The
same thing happened with Frank Lloyd Wright early on when he was still under
contract with Louis Sullivan.  He built some frame houses right on Chicago
Avenue in Oak Park, as though Sullivan couldn't ride by and tell with one
glance who had designed them.  Wright got fired.
