F.L. WRIGHT – LOGICA PLANULUI

Cum am putea sa descifram mai bine gandirea unui arhitect decat din propriile sale scrieri ?

In 1928 au fost publicate sub titlul IN THE CAUSE OF ARCHITECTURE mare parte din scrierile lui Frank Lloyd Wright.

Incep reproducerea acestor texte cu partea referitoare la modul cum gandea marele arhitect american, cel care a „inventat” arhitectura organica, concepea structurarea planului.

THE LOGIC OF THE PLAN

PLAN ! There is something elemental in the word itself. A pregnant plan has logic – is the logic of the building squarely stated. Unless it is the plan for a foolish Fair.
A good plan is the beginning and the end, because every good plan is organic. That means that its development in all directions is inherent – inevitable.
Scientifically, artistically to foresee all is „to plan.” There is more beauty in a fine ground plan than in almost any of its ultimate consequences.
In itself it will have the rhythms, masses and proportions of a good decoration if it is the organic plan for an organic building with individual style – consistent with materials.

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.

A man is a fool if he drinks before he reaches the age of 50, and a fool if he doesn’t afterward.

An architect’s most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board, and a wrecking bar at the site.

Early in life I had to choose between honest arrogance and hypocritical humility. I chose the former and have seen no reason to change.
