I can't claim to be any kind of authority on architecture or even very knowleable about architects and architecture in general, but I have always had an appreciation for it and am usually impressed when I enter a building designed by an architect. You can tell when you have because architects almost always bring with them a sense of light and space and details that engineers and contractors lack.
Of course Frank Lloyd Wright is a giant among giants but I had never visited one of his buildings until a year ago and my first visit to Florida Southern. Oh, I knew about Fallingwater and Taliesin and had seen the photo books and slide shows, but nothing could prepare me for seeing the real thing and no photograph can capture it. It's one of those things you have to experience to really understand.
Here is a little photo tour and I will try to let them speak for themselves and keep comments to a minimum.
|Walking among the buildings and covered walkways is a visual symphony of light and shadows. Everywhere you look, in any direction, you are met with a beauty that wants to draw you into it.|
I hope you enjoyed this little tour. If you ever have a chance to visit one of his creations... do it!
