From the Forum Network's lecture titled "Frank Lloyd Wright - Creative Mind: The Architect as Creator"
http://forum-network.org/lecture/crea...

"New York is the biggest mouth in the world. It appears to be prime example of the herd instinct, leading the universal urban conspiracy to beguile man from his birthright (the good ground), to hang him by his eyebrows from skyhooks above hard pavement, to crucify him, sell him, or be sold by him."

"Out of Americas rugged individualism captained by rugged captains of our rugged industrial enterprises we have gradually evolved a crude, vain power: plutocratic capitalism. Not true capitalism. I believe this is entirely foreign to our own original idea of democracy."

"I believe totally in a Capitalist System, I only wish that someone would try it."

"America needs no help to Broadacre City. It will haphazard build itself. Why not plan it?"

"Inevitably, there will develop a new form of community life, but just what it will be except as Broadacre City tentatively outlines it as free to grow, who can say? Not I. Who is going to say how humanity will eventually be modified by all these spiritual changes and physical advantages, sound and vision coming through solid walls to men, each aware of anything in or of the world he lives in without lifting a finger, making it unnecessary to go anywhere unless it is a pleasure to go. The whole psyche of humanity is changing and what that change will ultimately bring as future community I will not prophecy. It is already greatly changed."

What is it like living in a Frank Lloyd Wright House?
Janet and I get this question all the time. You have to be up to living in a famous piece of architecture. Janet and I are trying to do our homework and can talk Wright sort of but we're alway learning and living here I get to be taught by Wright himself. I like the large glass windows. More than any other feature that is what I enjoy most because you are always outdoors. The scenery always changes. Day and night, season to season it is just plain encouraging and never depressing. A large great room is another feature of the home and another typical modern home feature. Living here is like signing up for an intense architectural fellowship, a commitment to understand, be sensitive and learn. We're doing that and Janet and I also enjoy sharing the home with everyone that is interested. Every day that goes by fewer and fewer even know who Wright was but the ones that do are our kindred spirits. His buildings are timeless and that's another thing he's teaching me. .

Welcome to the Boulter House

Image

The Boulter House was designed near the end of Frank Lloyd Wright’s life (1868-1959). The home is a unique, two-story south-facing Usonian. The "Usonian" term was coined from Wright’s vision of suburbia in the United States of North America offering well-designed homes for middle class American families.
