"Even now, taking common sense into the holy realm of Art is shocking and 'really dangerous to all academic circles.' Nevertheless, I believe every matter of artistic import which concerns good building may be put to the common sense of an American business man. Approached with common sense, the problems of art become childishly simple. Perhaps all too simple for those educated 'beyond their capacity'."

Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect
