Childrens Activity

A great American architect who lived from 1867 to 1959, Frank Lloyd Wright designed houses, office buildings, museums, churches, a doghouse, and a gas station, always insisting that architecture should be organic. Wright thought that most houses were dark and crowded and constricting: he loved sunlight and freedom of movement, and he believed that the best buildings connected to their environments. His early home designs were very linear (or rectangular), with long roofs that went with the flat expanse of the American prairie. Many of these buildings had art glass windowsmade of countless small pieces of tinted glass held in zinc or brass frames. Those windows and other designs inspired the stickers in this book. Wright was taught about shapes at an early age. He used the circle, square, triangle, and hexagon as the basic shapes to create his buildings and his graphic designs. The square became his most recognized shape, as he set his signature on a red square at the bottom right corner of each drawing he approved. Wright once said, Colors; in paste or crayon, pencil; always a thrill. To this day I love to hold a handful of manycolored pencils and open my hand to see them lying loose upon my palm, in the light. 8 page softcover book with 150 reusable paper stickers (50 different designs) featuring designs by Frank Lloyd Wright.
