One of our favorite architects that bridges the steampunk and modern eras is Frank Lloyd Wright. So for episode 19 of Aes-y Listening, we picked one of his short speeches from 1938.
In it he discusses the Floo Floo Bird and how its tendency to fly backward was similar to the attitude of architects. His advice, that designers should move forward with the materials they have rather than cling to what came before, underlies some of the building design we’ve used for Laton.
This is the last episode of Aes-y Listening. YouTube, sadly, dislikes puns in the names of series when it comes to searching. So for the next episode, we used a new name for the concept.
