- Frank Lloyd Wright

About this Quote

Frank Lloyd Wright considered the duty of an architect as that of an enthusiast who has the capacity to visualize and also anticipate the future needs of society. To him, a designer must not merely style buildings, however must utilize their creativity and creativity to develop structures that solve issues and fulfill the transforming requirements of the people who use them.

According to Wright, a designer who can not see at least ten years ahead lacks the capacity to picture as well as prepare for future needs, and as a result can not be called a true enthusiast. In his view, an architect has to have a deep understanding of the social, economic, as well as social fads of their time, as well as need to be able to use that expertise creatively to develop buildings that stand the examination of time.

In essence, Wright is contacting architects to be greater than technological experts or skilled service technicians, but to be creative thinkers who can harness their abilities and also expertise to produce works of withstanding beauty and functionality that welcome and also mirror the demands of culture.
