  • Reflects the spirit of the times: the cooperative movement, the unprecedented unity of spirit that accompanied WWII, the Red Scare, and the civil rights movement
  • Wright’s organic architecture seeks to created a balance between private and communal life, home and environment, local and central government

the emerson of experience 1844
The Emerson of “Experience” (1844)

Daughters of Time, the hypocritic Days,Muffled and dumb like barefoot dervishes,And marching single in an endless file,Bring diadems and fagots in their hands.To each they offer gifts after his will,Bread, kingdoms, stars, and sky that holds them all.I, in my pleached garden, watched the pomp,Forgot my morning wishes, hastilyTook a few herbs and apples, and the DayTurned and departed silent. I, too late,Under her solemn fillet saw the scorn.
