Choice Slights from Frank Lloyd Wright

In a 1957 book, author Selden Rodman collected conversations with 35 of America's preeminent artists and architects. The interviews with Frank Lloyd Wright are a font of choice quotes on topics from Le Corbusier to NYC's density.

"Frank Lloyd Wright may be one of history’s greatest architects, but he was also a source of endlessly quotable wittimeless wisdom on education, and a lesser-known but exceptionally talented graphic artist," writes Maria Popova. "Above all, however, he was man of invariably strong opinions, always unapologetic in his convictions and unafraid to challenge even the most sacrosanct of dogmas."

"In Conversations with Artists (public library) — writer and public intellectual Selden Rodmans fantastic 1957 anthology, which also gave us Jackson Pollock on art and mortality shortly before the artist’s death — Wright unleashes the full force of his opinionation on some of his architectural elite peers, the disconnect between education and culture, and the trouble with the Manhattan skyline."
