As a child I dreamed of being an architect, often building entire cities out of Legos. I also drew more floor plans of “dream” houses than I could ever live in, in one lifetime.
One day I shared with my mom a house that I had created with a glass floor over a creek. My mom took one look at the drawing and pulled out the encyclopedia (if anyone can remember what those are) and showed me a photo of Fallingwater, a house built over a creek.
Fallingwater is probably one of the most famous houses Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed. Although architectural fame was not in my future I still admire architecture anytime I travel. I also occasionally pull out the Legos as well. One because I need to justify why I still have them and two because I still love building houses.
