Frank Lloyd Wright move to Italy – insanity

FLW created architecture in context. He promoted a full consideration of the site and crafted his solution to capture the view and the light around a developed architectural diagram bespoked to his Client.

And then someone, an architect (?) wants to uproot it and move it to an completely alien location…? Perhaps it’s just because you can…?!

  1. I suspect that FLW would have created the immortal client if he’d been able. Static context in perpetuity, and a caretaker for all eternity. Why stop at designing the chairs and prescribing where they shall always be placed when he could have also designed the person to always it in it 🙂
