"Profile America" feature for June 8 from the U.S. Census Bureau:

Profile America Wednesday, June 8th. Some houses simply sit on the land others look as if they are part of the land and belong there. That was the philosophy of one of America's most influential architects Frank Lloyd Wright whose birthday is noted today.

His style, radical for the time, was based on natural form and featured open rooms, skylights and large windows. Some famous examples of his work are the Guggenheim Museum in New York City and the renowned summer home called "Fallingwater," built over a stream in Pennsylvania.

Wright continued to work until his death, at the age of 91, and his ideas still impact the work of the nation's 180-thousand architects, more than one-fifth of them women. Once can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at http://www.census.gov.
