via RobotWisdom, a report that Fallingwater is falling down. Fawning over Frank Lloyd Wright has always seemed to me to be a typical case of personality over performance; his designs are still sometimes stunning, but the few buildings of his I've been in haven't seemed very practical or useable. On the other hand that seems to be the case with architects in general, and, for that matter, software designers. Stuck in concepts of elegance that have nothing to do with useability they curse the technology that can't keep up with them, while ignoring the beauty inherent in good practical engineering.
