John Randal McDonald was an American practitioner of Organic Architecture who confesses he read The Fountainhead while in the navy, “and that absolutely blew my mind away. I had to be Howard Roark, I had to be an architect, I had to do it my way." His favourite words?
"My favorite words—mark this down—my favorite words in this world are, 'Would you be our architect?'"See more photographs of his work here, and a 1999 interview with him here. [Hat tip Prairie Mod]
