Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954

Über den Künstler

Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) remains an iconic figure in American architecture and design. Born in Richland Center, Wisconsin, Wright's career spanned over seven decades and left an indelible mark on the world of architecture. He was known for his visionary approach, pioneering organic architecture that seamlessly integrated buildings with their natural surroundings. Wright's most famous works include Fallingwater, a masterpiece of modern architecture built over a waterfall in Pennsylvania, and the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, which features a distinctive spiral design. His unique style, characterized by clean lines, open spaces, and innovative use of materials, has influenced countless architects and continues to inspire generations of designers worldwide. Wright's legacy as an architectural genius and his commitment to a harmonious relationship between nature and structures have solidified his place as one of America's most revered architects.

The Unemployed Philosopher's Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.

Most of the proceeds go to unemployed philosophers (and their associates). A portion also goes to some groups working on profound causes.
