Wright's Grandson Continues Architectural Tradition

Frank Lloyd Wright's grandson hope to build his grandfather's plan for a dream city.

"Today, Frank Lloyd Wright's philosophy of "organic architecture" lives on with his grandson, Eric Lloyd Wright. He is using it in his own design work and teaching others about the concept...A basic idea of organic architecture building from within might be seen as opposite of some of today's architectural trends. For example, Mr. Wright notes that the work of Frank Gehry, with its sculptural approach using abstract metallic forms, emphasizes the exterior...Looking ahead, Eric Lloyd Wright would like to follow up on his grandfather's plan for a new city."
