The advice of a master

Nattadon Hill

In relation to yesterday's question, Frank Lloyd Wright believed that these were the most important assets for the young architects who studied under him to cultivate:

1. An honest ego in a healthy body
2. An eye to see nature
3. A heart to feel nature
4. Courage to follow nature
5. A sense of proportion (humor)
6. Appreciation of work as idea and idea as work
7. Fertility of imagination
8. Capacity for faith and rebellion
9. Disregard for commonplace (inorganic) elegance
10. Instinctive cooperation

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature," he told them. "It will never fail you.”
