Did you ever eat architecture?


And enjoy it?

The moment when all your senses awaken and everything you see, feel, and experience becomes part of your body and part of your memory is when it happens. It does not happen that often, but when it does, it is exceptional.

The last time I tasted architecture, I was in Los Angeles visiting a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. I still remember the feeling as if it were yesterday. I entered the building and I was empowered and transformed by the architectural integrity and the uplifting nature of the architectural features. I felt like I was like jumping into a pool of honey. The owner told me that Steven Spielberg loves to come visit the property, and that the house is constantly rented for events, parties, and shoots. Maybe you will see one on TV. It is quite a treat!
