Frank Lloyd Wright at the Drawing Table
The Unity found in the diversity of Kindergarten Gifts and Occupations bestows upon the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright the same inseparability of traits that dominate Froebel's play. Relationships apparent within Froebel's Kindergarten curriculum primarily account for its influence on Frank Lloyd Wright and his architectural art.
The unmistakable work of Frank Lloyd Wright, from his very earliest to most recent, attests to continuous mental analysis and synthesis of ideas for building, which ultimately appeared on drawing paper where they would undergo exhaustive detailed scrutiny by the master architect. In the end, every detail of his elaborate plans fits together on scaled grids or networks perfectly accounting for each point, line, plane and solid as two- and three-dimensional art forms.
Relationships apparent within Froebel's Kindergarten curriculum primarily account for its influence on Frank Lloyd Wright and his architectural art. These relationships, principally geometrical in nature, are found (1) among the various Kindergarten Gifts, (2) within the geometrical progression of Occupations and (3) between the two broad-based sets of playthings, one for discovery, the other for invention.
