Happy Birthday Mr. Architect...........


Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8 1867 - April 9, 1959) wan an architect, interior designer, writer and educator. He was a man ahead of his time. He was a pioneer in many ways. He was a leader of the "prairie school" movement of architecture. He designed furniture, stained glass and even his own clothing. Famous not only for his body of work, but also for his scandalous personal life which suffered two failed marriages and murder. In 1914 a male servant he hired set fire to the living quarters of Taliesin and murdered seven people with an axe, including Wright's mistress. Wright was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time". I love it all and these pictures inspire me to find my dream home. One day..........
