We visited yesterday. Having been unable to work out the timing these past 25 years, it was a real pleasure.

My son's comments (15 yo) ...

What he got really right, he got very right! Examples were the entrance/"car port", the main work space, and the lab spaces.

But he was so stubborn (egotistical?) that he got so very important things very wrong. Examples were the ceiling in the main work space (leaking) and the stair case in the lab (why so tediously small ... the elevator was marginal ... driving people to use the stairs ... we speculated).


To an aspiring engineer (my son), FLW is both inspirational (genius, yes) and a cautionary tale (arrogant to the point of blindness, probably).

Aha. A blossoming realist, able to separate the two sides of Wright's persona -- and the good from the questionable. Shake his hand for me, please . . .
