Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Image from Dwell Just one of the many beautiful sketches done by Frank Lloyd Wright. American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator Frank Lloyd Wright designed over 532 structures. But did you know that he actually designed over 500 more than were never built?! What else is interesting about Frank Lloyd Wright? 1. Mile High Illinois Frank Lloyd Wright presented his idea for a tripod-shaped structure in 1956 with a 26-foot-tall rendering done in gold ink. Had it been built, Mile High Illinois, would still be the world’s tallest building. 2. Gas Stations Did you know Wright designed gas stations in addition to beautiful high rises and residences? 3. Lincoln Logs Frank Lloyd Wright's son, John, designed interlocking timber construction pieces called Lincoln Logs. He received the patent in 1920 after being fired by his father. Did you learn something? We hope so!
