Quote of the day: Frank Lloyd Wright on roads

Speaking to Russel Norman as if it were today, instead of back in 193s when he said:

The road is a symbol of individual freedom. Cars aren't simply contemporary or modern, they represent democracy itself. The technology to cross and to communicate long distance facilitates: air, light and freedom of movement.”

It’s no accident that his name for his concept for America, Broadacre City, has the word “road” embedded at its heart.

Good old Frank.

Went to Fallingwater last year. Cool house. I was amazed to see a real Piccaso and Diego hanging on the walls.

The guy certainly knew how to make a statement. One of the highlights of PA.
