Re: Frank Lloyd Wright

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
One of the requirements of being a good Architect, is the ability to
conceive the structural form and system (not the actual analysis & design)
that satisfies & is best suited for the spaces & functionality he conceives
of. And he was certainly very good at that.

And to add 90% of the architects lack this ability, which results in trouble
for himself and the Structural Engineer in addition to the cost inflation
for the client.

Many Architects think Frank Lloyd Wright was a true visionary who could do
no wrong. What is your opinion of him and his accomplishments?

A light discussion topic for a Friday......
