Re: Making Wright Great Again ... The Next Decade

Re: Charnley House

An interesting three part read on Sullivan, Wright, and the Charnley House: http://chicagopatterns.com/louis-sullivan-frank-lloyd-wright-c...

Re:

I agree What was it, then, that Wright so admired in Sullivan ? SDR In my opinion Louis Sullivan and his work was the initial foundation for the great Prairie School work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Without FLW's apprenticeship in the office Louis Sullivan, I believe that it is doubtful that FLW would ha...

1) movies are tough as the topic of architecture is a hard sell and Wright was an old man for a long time...few pictures these days feature old protagonists. That said, I do think a story (maybe a series) could be made set in the apprentice program. So this would be sort of "Mad Men" but set in tha...

Wright Chat Spam Is Not Right

First, thank you to the moderators for managing the spam.

Second, I am curious. Does spamming actually work? Can you (site moderator) tell if they achieve click-throughs (evidence of spam success)? Spamming feels very 2005 and wonder why people waste their time, unless it is all bots.
