Full circle!

In 1970 Simon & Garfunkel recorded a song about him on their album Bridge over Troubled Water. And it has been said that Paul Simon wrote the song as a farewell to his musical partner, using his name to stand for Garfunkel. (Garfunkel is a big fan of architecture)

In 2000 his cultural landmark Fallingwater was named "The Building of the 20th century".

Indeed. We're talking about Mr. Andrew Lloyd Wright. The American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects. His colorful personal life often made headlines, most notably for the 1914 fire and murders at his Taliesin studio. Oops! Did I just spoil the plot?

In 2010 the artwork of Private Care is inspired on this man's work. So we've come full circle. The man can rest now...
