    oh, the biggest “starchitect” of them all: Mr. Wright! i visited the first house he designed (his own) on a rainy day in a suburb of chicago – it was cold and my son was nagging but we both left the house elated…along with Mies van der Rohe, F.L. Wright has been one of my favorite architects and responsible for my later appreciation of this art. koolhaas, herzog and de meuron, zaha hadid, johnson and the great louis khan all came afterwards to me.

    Architects are somehow divine in their own right – they imagine, create and build great things. Wright is right to call God and Nature intermittently…

    I love the roof and the Door of this place. I guess its an entrance to a stable or a store house.

    I had seen a Documentary called My Son, The Architect by Louis Kahn son. It was a beautiful docu, with some incisive interviews with other contemporary architects. In all his works it was very evident that he strives for building a MONUMENT which is more like he is trying to communicate with GOD.

    it’s a good quete but not original…
    Spinoza is the source.
    it’s not surprising because like in his works he reveals as master in copying… from nature to form & material. not to be mistaken, he does it like no other and I truely value his legacy.
    in reference, Einstein said : “I believe in Spinoza’s God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings”
