Interesting question--I read an article once that he wasn't anywhere near 
the structural engineer that he was an architech. Can't find the article 
now. We have a few of his buildings around here and some are having 
structural problems. A Google search on ["Frank Lloyd wright: structure 
damage] turns up quite a few hits. Although not all of them relate to 
structural defects, a significant number do.
