About the Frank Lloyd Wright Newsblog
Frank Lloyd Wright and his buildings generate a lot of news. There are countless events, internet photo galleries, videos and books. I started this site to serve as a hub so other fans could discover the good stuff and not waste time on the bad stuff.
I’m selective about what’s posted here — not every news story adds anything interesting, not every link is worthwhile, and not every event is blogworthy.
Sometimes I miss things I shouldn’t and sometimes I get things wrong — when I do, plase do not hesitate to let me know. If we disagree on matters of opinion, feel free to weigh in — yelling, gratuitious arm waving and slightly unhinged rants are welcome. Passion means we care. Civility towards other commentors is required; civility towards me is optional — when I’m wrong, or in your opinion wrong-headed, let me know.
About Douglas Anders
I’ve been a Wright fan since July 4, 2001 when my wife and I took a spur-of-the-moment tour of Wright’s Home & Studio in Oak Park. Since then, despite adding one child and losing one career, I’ve been to three Wright Pluses, Fallingwater, Taliesin, toured 17 other Wright buildings and driven past another 20-odd; a trip to Buffalo is planned for Summer 2013 and Taliesin West the following year. I’m a self-annointed expert on touring Chicago.
I am an abstractor and librarian at a mid-sized law firm in Toledo, Ohio — a city with no Wrights, and only one Prairie Style structure and otherwise damn little decent architecture. I attended the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, and have degrees in Classics and church history (not very useful). I am opinionated about nearly everything (including the superiority of Minor League Baseball to Major League) but I try not to let that get too annoying.
