WRIGHT STUDIES AND PHOTO ESSAYS
Touring a Frank Lloyd Wright home is like walking through a three dimensional piece of artwork. It surrounds you. It touches your senses. The merging of interior and exterior mediums is remarkable. It touches the soul. Like other creative and artistic geniuses such as Picasso and Dylan, Wright constantly evolved. Moving from one period to the next. Like designing the Moore Residence, but never another in that style. While others spent their careers copying and elaborating on the Prairie style, Wright moved on.
Frank Lloyd Wright designs can be described, analyzed, explored and studied in so many ways. The depth and complexity of his designs are overwhelming. What we study are details. From details of his stained glass windows and fixtures, to his perforated wood cut light screens to his mitered glass corners, his details are ingenious. I am always overwhelmed when I see the complexity of the Dana Butterfly light fixture. His imaginative use of material and space, doors that open outward, cantilevered roofs, or corner doors that when opened remove corners; Hiis details are endless.
