Summertime warm memories

On such gloomy days like these ones, I always recall vacations. My thoughts on juicy and usually warm summertime help me to survive cold days. Going through my pictures, while sitting comfortably under the warm blanket on my sofa  and enjoying cup of hot fruit tea,  brings me back to sunny holiday places.
It will not be surprising when I say that our Angelo Antique team absorbs every bit of the sun during the holidays. However, we always try to explore areas associated with art and architecture. So, this year we headed to the United States of America to grasp some work of America’s master architect.

Maybe to some of you it sounds mysterious  but the fame of this  great architect is spread all over the America. The name of this master architect is Frank Lloyd Wright.

Strolling around historic neighborhood

In a little town of Oak Park, on the suburbs of Chicago while strolling along avenue dotted with noble oaks, we took a chance to witness this historic neighborhood. This district contains  Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio, as well as the greatest concentration of his residential architecture design.

Wright’s design reflected open spaces as well as flow of energy and movement. His architectural style was extended with original materials in order to adapt building according to its native habitat either in the rural or urban scenery. Therefore he believed that:

“The good building makes the landscape more beautiful that it was before the building was built” F.L. Wright, 1931

Wright’s strong desire was to reach harmony in the architecture immersed in the landscape and local community. His aim was to implement the ideology of organic architecture ranging from furniture, interiors and houses to freeways.

“When we begin to build buildings that have an expression of beauty, of our own time, then we will have an architecture that we can call organic F.L. Wright, 1955

It is surprising but the ascetics in Wright’s architecture is present because for six years he experienced Asian art and style in Japan. During this time, Wright learnt how to absorb and translate Japanese symbols into his own style of architecture projects. Although futuristic visions, he tried to fuse flora and fauna together with art, and incorporate them into traditional architectural values.

I hope that taking you on the journey through Wright's majestic architecture dipped in the sun you feel released from cold. At least to some extent it was my aim.
