"When we said we wanted a house at Bear Creek," client Lillian Kaufmann said to Frank Lloyd Wright, "we didn't imagine you would build it ON the creek!"

To which Wright replied, "In time you'd grow tired of the sight of creek...but you'll never grow tired of the sound."

And he was right. Fallingwater stands as the most recognized house in architecture. yet it's not just a was a home. The Kaufmanns' loved it.

Similarly, owners of other Wright-designed buildings may have struggled with the architect, the implementation may have had flaws, the builders and other constructors may have gone behind Wright's back to fix perceived design flaws... but they all loved the buildings. The architect's vision remains inspiration to this day.

This presentation looks at three Wright landmarks— Fallingwater in Ohiopyle, the Pope-Leighy house in Alexandria, and Taliesin West in Phoenix— and the experience architecture inspiration they hold for experience designers.

I also believe that, through Wright's examples, we can learn elements that take our approaches to experience architecture to newly useful and inspiring levels for our clients and the users of our work.

During this presentation, we'll take a look at pictures and principles from these three sites. We will explore analogs to our practice through these elements:

* Context: How does the site selection integrate with user needs and desires?
* Clients: What do Wright's relationships with his clients teach us? Where did he innovate, and where did he fail?
* Connection: How does the architect connect the lives of the clients with the results of the design? Expect lots of pictures.
