So you think you're a good architect; do you design these for your projects too? #FLW

I’ve been looking at planning a trip later in the year to Chicago as an ‘architectural tour’ of mostly work by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Now we all know about his classic buildings:

or:

And we sort of knew about the furniture he designed for the houses:

But what about the vent grilles on the house?:

Or the Fire-place tools!:

Or the wallpaper designs:

Or how about your wives dresses!:

I could go on. And on. And on. Now that is an architect; the designer of everything you see and touch. The incredible legacy of work by Frank Lloyd Wright that is an inspiration to all designers.

More to follow on this later in the year – watch this space…
