|Our guide pointed out how Wright structurally framed this lovely view.|
Today architecture apprentices and fellows continue to work, as they have since the 1950s, in a large studio where the words of Emerson carved in wood across the front of the room reinforce Wright's philosophy: "What a man does, that he has" (Spiritual Laws). I was struck by the long heritage of experiential learning centered in the Hillside buildings from Wright's aunts' school to his first youthful experiments with architecture on their property to the apprenticeship learning model that still governs the Taliesin Fellowship. You learn by doing, and what you do is yours.
Bonus reading: Tim and N. read Wright's Autobiography last year.
