Let’s speak evil of Frank Lloyd Wright
Let’s gossip today.
Let’s speak evil of Frank Lloyd Wright, idolized by crowds of Surveyors and Construction experts and enthusiastic students of architecture (but only up to sophomore year, because later on it becomes, oh, so wrong).
For those who don’t know Wright, he’s the designer of the famous Falling Water House (Fallingwater, 1936)
He was a poor student ar school when he was young.
He was an engineer, he has attended only to engineering courses (when he was 15, as an external student) but he never graduated in architecture, She married at age 21 with Catherine, 18. He had dropped her to the ground at a party and that’s how their friendship began.
He made 1141 drawings.
He left his family to pursue his own dream of being architect in Chicago.
Frank Lloyd Wright had always hated Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
He designed 17 skyscrapers, but only one was built.
We will speaking ill of other famous architects very soon.
