    One thought on “Frank Lloyd Wright”

    1. When I was very young architecture was my leading likely career path I loved to draw buildings and skyscrapers and floor plans I even liked drawing city layouts and skylines So in either the third or fourth grade, Wright was the subject of one of my first essay assignments I can t remember which book I read to research the piece, but I m sure it was geared to young readers and very heroic, because my report said nothing about Wright s inflated ego and arrogance or made much fuss about his cold a [...]

    2. A general overview of Wright s work with few interesting facts It also seems like the pictures chosen to be published do not really do the justice to the buildings themselves.

    3. not a good book if u want to get to know the philosophy of wright s design it s a good book if your interested in architecture as a hobby not your job.
