Wrightian: Glasner House, Glencoe, Il. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
Wrightian = An imprecise term suggestive of the work of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959) and some of his followers. Wright cannot be characterized by a single architectural style; for example, some of his early buildings, closely associated with the Prairie School , differ markedly from his later design. Also see Organic architecture and Prairie style. zapata =
In Spanish Colonial architec- ture of the Americas, a hori- zontal piece of wood, atop a post, that provides greater bearing area to support the load imposed on the post from above; usually carved similar to a bolster.
