Frank Lloyd Wright

This post isnt so much related to software, but I started reading a couple of books about Frank Lloyd Wright recently. Loving Frank by Nancy Horan ISBN: 9780345494993 and Death in a Prairie House: Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Murders by William R. Drennan ISBN: 0299222144. Two really great books, showing a different side of Frank Lloyd Wright. We all know him for his unique architecture, but there is an interesting personal aspect to him. These books really explain his personal life and the story no one talks about of the famous architect.
Years ago I was able to visit Taliesin (East) in Wisconsin. It was very exciting to see the studio where the young architects-to-be would draft and lived. I wonder what Frank would think of CAD and BIM today? Maybe thata another blog entry! Anyway, there was not a mention of any scandals, adultry, or murder. It is very much a on the down-low. If you a up for a intersting read check out these books.
