Iknhaton: Here to say Falling Water is the most amazing building ever.
bingethinker: It's good they didn't build this. Wright's buildings have a habit of falling down.
deeproy: Say, does anyone know if there is a skyscraper design of Wright's that was built? If so, where is it?
Drakuun: In Bartlesville, OK, is the only skyscraper of Wright's design. Interestingly.
schattenteufel: Frank Lloyd WrightFLLWFaLLing Water
JohnAnnArbor: Hope it doesn't fall in. The engineers added steel without telling Wright, and it's still not enough.
RatOmeter: Interestingly, the only skyscraper design of Wright's is in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
Mr. Potatoass: Interestingly, Frank Lloyd Wright also designed windshield scrapers.
JohnAnnArbor: Mr. Potatoass: Interestingly, Frank Lloyd Wright also designed windshield scrapers.Yeah, but they matched the garages he designed. If you park the car somewhere else, you can't use the Wright scraper to get ice off of it. From a design standpoint.
darkvstar: Wright was a brilliant designer with one enormous fatal flaw. He never took into account that people would actually have to live in and use his creations. He thought that the spaces should re-make the humans inside and not the other way around.
darkvstar: Falling Water is a damp, cold unlivable space. Water condenses on the interior surfaces continuously and it take a full time staff to keep it from turning into a giant mildew experiment.///Wright was a brilliant designer with one enormous fatal flaw. He never took into account that people would actually have to live in and use his creations. He thought that the spaces should re-make the humans inside and not the other way around.
Corvus: Making a design that is challenging for someone to actually build should mean you are a shiat architect not a great architect.
fearmongert: Does anyone know anything interesting about Frank Lloyd Wright?
