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).
