Paolo Soleri…

L’architetto novantenne Paolo Soleri, Leone d’oro alla carriera alla Mostra Internazionale di Architettura della Biennale di Venezia nel 2000, con una “letio magistralis” ha aperto la giornata dedicata alla Festadell’Architettura all’Auditorium Parco della Musica di Roma dal 28 settembre al 10 ottobre. Nonostante l’età Paolo Soleri ha intrattenuto la numerosa platea con temi trattati dai suoi progetti che hanno precorso gran parte delle attuali tendenze dell’architettura sostenibile…

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater House Offers Exclusive Access

Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most famed American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects, which resulted in more than 500 completed works. He is best known for designing Fallingwater. Fans of Frank Lloyd Wright’s house Fallingwaterhave long been able to visit the architect’s modernist masterpiece as a museum, but soon they can enjoy the house almost as if they were living in it. Right now regular visitors pay $18 admission to visit the house, but for $1,195, these exclusive visitors will feel what living in Fallingwater is truly like, although they will sleep in a new Frank Lloyd Wright style home on the property grounds. Four million people have visited the home since it’s public open, about ninety minutes from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but now for that exclusive price tag you can have a new unique ( and expensive ) experience. You can find more info about this from here. – Via – Reuters

Frank Lloyd Wright gas station

The prairie-style homes, churches, hotels and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright are well-known.
But the famed architect also designed a service station in this town about 20 miles west of Duluth.
And now the family that owns it is restoring and preserving it after about 30 years of neglect.
It’s the only service station ever designed by Wright, the renowned early-20th century architect and longtime Oak Park resident.

The station was built in 1958 but had fallen into disrepair. Since last year, the owners have spent nearly $250,000 to restore some of Wright’s original design touches, including copper trim around the roof and ’50s-style garbage cans. They also put in a new roof and insulation.

Owner Mike McKinney says the station still usually gets a few visitors every day interested in Wright’s design.
