Taliesin, June 18, 1957.
This is a condensed version of an interview that can be found here for free: www.myfamilymemoirs.com. The video was split into several segments and rearranged to shorten what was originally 14 minutes.

"No man is free who is afraid. And he is afraid until he has developed the certainty that comes from a creative life and a creative role in life by way of art, religion, and science." - FLW

"Mediocrity is always dishonest. You may not think that is a true statement, but let's go it the other way around and say dishonesty is always mediocre."-FLW

"Why have we denied and gone against every fundamental principle that we found our forefathers—or would have found if we studied it—declared as freedom? I can't understand it, unless it is that all our standards are so mixed, like our blood, that we have lost sight of anything straightforward, clean, true, and original."-FLW

Arcosanti Visit

 I had a chance to drive to this FLW student's work while in Las Vegas this January.

Arcosanti

View from the valley of this Paolo Solari architectural community in the Arizona desert. I found it is designed like the body of a woman lying down along side the desert canyon. Envisioned for a community of 5000, the initial structure built in the 70s can house a few dozen.
