I’m curious about the idea of art, design, and the adjacent possible. For progress that feels like a jump ahead, it usually comes by the creator being bold enough to ignore the obvious problems. The success comes from valuing the result over the (very rational) fears.
As Fallingwater turns 75, we’ve progressed to the point where we can look back and retro-actively fix Wright’s structural problems. Seems like a small price to pay for the barriers that he design broken and the inspiration Fallingwater provided a generation of architects following.
