Achitecture done right; thankfully not Wright

One of the more influential Western architects, Frank Lloyd Wright has left behind a legacy of insipid, uninspiring, flat structures (picture, below). Indeed, when it comes to the style of Wright, the only thing left to marvel at is the boundless adoration and approval his work enjoyed.

(I suspect there is more to the veneration of modernism than simply an American desire to be in vogue. But that is for another day, and another post.)

I wish here to contrast the banality of Wright with the beauty of authentic design.

Take, for example, Duncan G. Stroik Architecture, LLC, based out of Indiana.

See for yourself the transforming power of human desire, effort and creativity at its finest.
