Currently reading Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. I’m a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work and his outlook on design and the environment. Horan blends fact and fiction beautifully in this novel by telling a story that gives us a glimpse into the personal life of Frank Lloyd Wright and his intense love affair with Mamah Cheney.
I’ve visited three Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the United States. I’m always taken back in time when I enter one of his architectural masterpieces. So far, this novel is doing the same for me. By the way, how incredibly gorgeous is the book cover? Frank loved to incorporate glass into his designs, and the parallel lines in the same planes that never meet — ahh, sigh!

I can’t contain myself! LEGO is introducing a series of licensed Frank Lloyd Wright LEGO sets. Get ready. The first two sets in the series are Fallingwater and The Guggenheim. The models were developed in collaboration with architects so this is more than just a toy. Hopefully, this new LEGO series will inspire a new generation of designers, architects, and engineers. I’m ready to build my replicas.
