Frank Lloyd Wright was an amazing architect and one that has a very interesting biography. In a previous class I had the pleasure of studying a documentary about his life work and it only mentioned this campus but did not go into much detail as you have done here so I am very grateful to you for this week’s topic.

Cathy, the “day lighting” techniques used by FLW were way ahead of his time. Now a buzz word in sustainable and LEED certified architecture, day lighting was used throughout this campus. I have a friend that attended Florida Southern who said classes were not cancelled when the power went out, because the sky lights provided adequate illumination!

There also was the circular Friedman house near Pleasantville, N.Y., in a cooperative development known as Usonia Houses. Usonia was the descriptive word used by Mr. Wright to typify what he considered to be the ideal American architectural style.

One of Mr. Wright's largest commissions was the $10,000,000 campus of Florida Southern College in Lakewood. The project was begun in 1936 and sixteen structures were to be completed by 1960. Again Mr. Wright received mixed reactions for one of the edifices--a modern chapel building.
