Frank Lloyd Wright by Sami Khalil

A legend of architecture…


Reams of printed page could not do him justice. The visual silhouettes he created and left behind, became the hazy evidence of a genius, in roars of triumph.

Man, matter and capacity live fully at the chants of organic elements unified. Frank Lloyd Wright was rebel in thought and design in practical ways. Long mulled over, he went against the grain. Things called for drastic thinking, for some antiquated beliefs do not reach desirable endings.

There seemed to be a wider decline in newness of architecture till his time. No short answers, in the process of connection, from enabling rifts of amalgams. One must have visceral shifts from tradition. To be tactfully right, be the change, the prototypical manifestations, in your quiet intonations for ideas evoke notions, meanings evoke shadows and emotions.

I say, “Let there be spaces,” for utterances come before spaciousness. In pursuing any trade, success has no guarantees in himself, but in choosiness of validity and importance. I must add that whether there is beauty, no dullness resides, but grayness disappears into the wild imaginings.

Frank laid out his plans on the page consciously, routed by creativity’s pleasures in all its humanistic features. His motives were to burn the insuperable barriers, deconstruct the box, relish the natural settings, fetch the cultural sights, enhance the margins and aspects of design. He never suppressed translation for incumbent on thinkers, at the outset of innovation, to be superseded by incorporation. And for things to have permanent values, they must be sacred in the eyes of the beholder, in the ways of the wise and the soldier.

Pervasively, valence comes from the primitive recognition of dualism, the rich embodiment to single line individualism, of reason as it targets the process in lucid pluralism.

I say, “Pay close attention at design, lest you miss something in the countless expression appearing not at quick glances.” “Arts defense is dual; the seeker represents the first always.”

dear Sami... I saw a white stucco Church in Kansas City, Missouri
forty years ago that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
It had two levels and the ceiling was a Cathedral ceiling where
modern designs let the light shine through and down in holy beams.
It was white stucco on the inside and out. It was genius and I never left there really.
I always see it in my Minds Eye. Close to the Church is a Fountain with about four horses
that were transported from Paris where a Sculptor created the horses. The exact same Fountain
is also on the grounds of the Capitol of the USA. Arti is genius.... and Poets like you write
in Stone to remember. truly, Pat

:::::)))))))))
Wright was a fantastic architect and innovator in how he envisioned spaces that built in unifying nature with living as opposed to just tearing things down... your picture shows this vividly and your words accentuate this view point as well... he was a forward thinker and far too few utilize his methods today in both designs as well as where things are built... your words Sami, not only honor the man, but allow us to see beyond the concrete jungle to imagine the possibilities of living where we are in harmony with our surroundings... this was the gift that Frank Lloyd Whright gave us and a gift that you put into words… truly nicely done Sami...
