"The Wright Series."
The 'Wright Series' sculptures are derived from the works of Frank Lloyd

( periods or ages ) of Frank Lloyd Wright, based on:
Lloyd Home and Studio, Oak Park, Chicago, Illinois.
Temple, Oak Park, Chicago, Illinois.
( Kaufmann House ), Mill Run, Pennsylvania.
House, Pope-Leighey Home, Alexandria, Virginia.

houses. Note that in certain cases, notably FallingWater, the experience
of visiting the house is substantially different from seeing the building
in a book.

Wright was influenced by the work of Fredrich Froebel ( the inventor of
Kindergarten ), and John Wright, his son, was the inventor of Lincoln

house, and the first sculpture. By the end of the series, 'Studio and
House', the reference is mainly the previous sculptures as opposed to
