To settle any curiosity you might have…
Yes, I am a Frank Lloyd Wright sycophant… I grew up less than 20 miles away from the Cook house in Virginia Beach…
I had the good fortune of seeing it when I was about 10 years old and I’d been in love ever since…
I do recommend visiting one of his beauties to fully appreciate Wright’s work… List by location
I’m also a big Frank Gehry fan.
Gehry and Wright are why I took my first drafting class.
I live approximately 40 minutes from Falling Water but have never had the chance to tour it. Have you had the pleasure?
I used to live about 5 miles from Frank Lloyd Wright’s Meyer May house in Grand Rapids, MI.
I have seen many FLW homes as I grew up in Iowa, now live in Minnesota. There are many in Illnois and Wisconsin which are close by.
There is a FLW-designed house in Two Rivers, WI where I grew up as well and is now available for overnight rental. And of course his long-time residence Taliesin is in Spring Green….
There are a number of FLW buildings at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, FL. I managed to bump my head on one of his sloped walls once and I’m not tall. Neat building in that picture.
I love going to visit the Frieda and Henry J. Neils House in Minneapolis. It is the only FLW home that has Marble walls. Henry Neils was a stone distributor so he worked closely with FLW to have those features. They have an open house a couple of times a year and I always find myself there.
i got a woman boner when i saw that house. which is a sentence i never thought i’d say.
Frank Lloyd Wright did Beth Sholom Synagogue in Philly; I had a boss get married there! It was pretty awesome.
I’m going to Pittsburgh in May, to The Avett Brothers, and going to try to go see Falling Waters.
I work next door to a Gehry building!
