The view is why you chose the site, built the house, and started the architecture school at that site. The view of YOUR property. Remember, you're a genius, and you think buildings should fit their surroundings, both in materials and placement.
You whip out a masterpiece. It's exactly what you want.
The next part I have to piece together from our tour guide and from the internet. Some government dweeb, long forgotten except for this solitary act of vandalism, decides to invoke his Eminent Domain privileges and run powerlines across your property. You fight it, you even go to Harry Truman to try to get him to intervene. The powerlines totally ruin the view.
The wall to the left was once almost 100% window. Wright bricked it in halfway up so he wouldn't have to see the powerlines in the distance.
He changed the main entrance from the front of the house to the back of the house, all to avoid looking at the reminder of the theft of his property.
This is the man who built Fallingwater, recently voted as the most architecturally significant building of the 20th century. And even he had to put up with that kind of crap from his government.
The guides won't let you take pictures in the living quarters for some reason. But at one point, our tour leader asked if there was a pianist in the house, someone who could show off the acoustics of the den. I volunteered, and therefore was able to get my picture taken playing Frank's Steinway. A rare privilege.
(Organic, natural, architectural materials look great, by the way. But they are no good at keeping pianos in tune. I'm just sayin'.....)
