I have just posted an addendum to my Wright-centric review of Joseph Siry's book about Air Conditioning in Modern American Architecture to my www.wrightinracine.com website.

What a remarkable statement: ". . . it should throw out sparks to others. That is really the judgement of a piece of art, that power. If the tower has this power . . . to make you want to build one of the things, then I believe it functions."

Louis Kahn has made a novel claim about what a work of art is---that it makes one want to do likewise, to take the seed and grow the flower, as Wright said about the work he was doing. What architectural designer hasn't wished he had done, even once, something indistinguishable from Wright ?
