VIDEO: So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright

YouTube Preview Image

Quite possibly the most well-loved architect of our time, Frank Lloyd Wright was known for his “organic” architecture that harmonized with its surroundings (See the AD Classic: Fallingwater House). He would have turned 145 today.

So it seems fitting that the masters of harmony themselves, Simon and Garfunkel, eulogized the eternal Wright in song. In their words:

Architects may come and 
Architects may go and 
Never change your point of view. 
When I run dry 
I stop awhile and think of you 

So long, Frank Lloyd Wright 
All of the nights we’d harmonize till dawn. 
I never laughed so long 
So long 
So long.

So long, Frank.
