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.

Yes, visual is the strongest form of persuasion My youngest got a virtual reality headset for gaming. Why not an online library to walk through each Wright house or structure.

My concern in the first post is very real.

Tim- Back to your title of this thread: Maybe I’m not understanding you correctly, but it seems your basic premise is that Wright presently must no longer great, valid, relevant, or respected internationally. Can you explain why you believe that is the case? Eight of his buildings just recei...
