A small crowd of neighbors gathered outside his newest house on a recent evening, drawing near to admire the way the house reads architecturally when brightly lit up from the inside, the front wall floating above narrow glass windows that separate it from the floor, and light shining through the triangular glass windows above that illuminate the flat, slanted plane of the roof.
"Why, it looks like it was designed by, oh, who was that man?" asks an elderly woman out strolling with her husband, who avers, "Frank Lloyd . . . er . . . Wright." Indeed, the public still attributes any residence with a flat roof to this country's only well-known architect. The Modernists of the new millennium have their work cut out for them.
