MARCELLO FAGIOLO - Frank Lloyd Wright. The «Great Spirit» of Space
The author's consideration of the concept of space in Wright, includes a discussion of earlier commentary on this subject. Based on F.L. Wright's writings and especially his Testament, the article analyzes the concept of space, which was for Wright the basis of any architecture. The author feels that the most authentic key to interpretation is to be had in the conjunction of Philosophy with Religion with respect to which poetry is a means rather than an end. The architect comes to be the prophet of a society to come and architecture a religion that establishes the laws of relationship between man and the reality surrounding him.
