Mistakes


Franklloydwright

A doctor can bury his mistakes but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines.   Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called “the best all-time work of American architecture”. Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States.

      1. Howard Roark was the architect in Ayn Rand’s novel “The Fountainhead”. He blew up his own building rather than have the design compromised against his wishes. I was suggesting that this is a better idea than planting vines.

Witty observation, disparaging remark, question for A.A., well this is your chance.
