View Resource A Virtual Look at the Works of Frank Lloyd Wright

In many ways, Frank Lloyd Wright was the "Master Builder" archetype par excellence. His iconic and instantly recognizable architectural style continues to influence designers today and his persona was far beyond the common phrase "larger than life", as he suffered no fools and did he what pleased in most aspects of his professional and personal life. The first site offers a nice look into some of...
