Hoffman, Donald
April 1992
Design Quarterly;Spring92, Issue 155, p2
The article focuses on the discrepancies of Frank Lloyd Wrights's architectural work. It relates that Wright manages to create buildings out from his imagination which were never constructed at all or at times came out insufficient as to what was on the plan, poorly built, left unfinished or built with errors and evident difficulties. Moreover, it discusses on Wright's ideas and crafts that were of inferior structural workmanship as noted in some museums.
