"At Sandoro's suggestion, Stinson and his architect – Patrick Mahoney of Lauer-Manguso & Associates – contacted the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and its affiliated School of Architecture. The foundation no longer licenses the use of Wright plans but did not object to Stinson using the chapel design 'as an inspiration.' "

What does that mean ... that from now on anything Wright designed can be freely used as an "inspiration"? How would that be better than the previous licensing agreements, during witch the Foundation retained at least some control over Wright's work.

It has always been the case that artists and architects have been inspired in their creativity by the world around them. I doubt that this can be legislated or licensed.

We have numerous contemporary buildings in Mason City that were inspired by Mr. Wright's architecture both in this town and elsewhere.

"The chapel will also include rooms and a hallway from a Wright-designed and now greatly altered home in Minneapolis, purchased from the company that did major demolition. The rooms will be for bridal prep."

Developer Henry Stinson:
"It also sort of reinforces the idea of the hotel as a destination for events," said Stinson.
"The other thing is that it's such an architectural landmark.
It's a selfie place and that's something very important to buildings now.
Pictures.
People don't read anything anymore. They look at pictures.
They take a selfie and this would be a perfect one for it."

Selfies taken in great works of architecture or on natural sites that are spectacular, like the Grand Canyon, are better if the selves are left out of them.
