About this Quote

Frank Lloyd Wright's quote speaks with the concept that wonderful architects must be able to analyze the times they stay in as well as create something that is reflective of the society and values of their age. He suggests that designers must have the ability to express themselves in a creative as well as poetic method order to produce something that is truly special and meaningful. Wright indicates that designers must be able to look past the physical facets of a building as well as take into consideration the much deeper ramifications of their job. He suggests that architects have to be able to translate the needs and desires of their culture and produce something that talks with the worths of their time. In this way, architects can produce something that is genuinely ageless as well as purposeful.
