If these are some of the examples of what the School of Architecture at Taliesin is teaching as "organic architecture," then is it really a loss if it closes? https://i.ibb.co/b1FTh0D/Screen-Shot-2020-02-04-at-4-27-05-PM.png https://i.ibb.co/BCvPtfN/Screen-Shot-2020-02-04-at-4-27-12-PM.png https://i...

Currently there is a resurgence, from the depths of the 30s, of socialism (or dare I say "DEMOCRATIC socialism," as Bernie would say, shaking his fists toward the heavens) which will roundly oppose any effort to recapture the fundamental idea of the Republic. But in the end, that movement (hardly p...

So, if the leadership/board at the FLWT is being potentially damaging the long-term health of the organization through their actions, is there a mechanism to censure or even oust them that could be exercised? They are not a private corporation that can do whatever they want, correct?

What else would anyone expect from Daley? He is akin to Al Capone and his lot. The site of Meigs is still, 15 years later, a blank lot. Let's compare a before and after and see what is referred to as a "blank lot": http://i64.tinypic.com/ndmp7p.jpg Yes, if "blankness" means a beautiful green space ...

Yeah, getting rid of corporate CEO's private airport and transforming it into a public park and nature area for all to enjoy is definitely an unforgivable act of selfish executive over reach that could not possibly be outdone... https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/18/politics/donald-trump-emergency-declarat...

I really enjoy reading about Wright at this Wright-related chat site and appreciate all the others' many contributions to that topic. I, like many others I suspect, am here to mostly learn from others and don't feel I have much to contribute to the usually erudite discussion about Wright . I only fe...

Isn't this supposed to be a chat site about Frank Lloyd Wright?

There are plenty of political outlets on the web to post this kind of "running in place and getting nowhere" type of discussion.

Can we get back to Wright?

I'm for stopping this counter productive discussion on an architecture chat site. Save it for a personal blog, Facebook, or other more appropriate forum.

It's not that I don't think this topic isn't important...it's just not really appropriate to this outlet and at this point you're using it for a daily diary of vent-able frustrations. Which when vented for the sake of venting, then spurs Roderick on to act on his obligatory sense of smug contrariani...

This thread is going nowhere. SDR/Peter/others of left-leaning sensibilities: We get it. Things suck and are getting ridiculously suckier under a regime so unqualified it actually revels in it. No one with a human soul is missing that and I'm not sure daily reminders of it on a Wright chat site are ...

How anyone can seriously defend 45 and his incoherent, uninformed, and generally ignorant daily statements is the truly sad state of things in America. Ignorance (or the excuse thereof) is not a virtue, no matter how much someone resents the policies of the other side of the aisle. To be an apologis...
