HOW FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT USED TO HELP ME IN THE BEGINNING
Frank Lloyd Wright really helped me in the beginning. I think I can explain that best in the manner of a confession.
"I, Amancio d'Alpoim Miranda Guedes, hereby declare that during my fifth and last year of study I purchased from Vanguard Booksellers the bookshop owned by Fanny Klennerman on Joubert Street in Johannesburg, the only copy of a blood red book entitled in the Nature of Materials for 36 shillings. I confess that this book had a disturbing and corrupting influence upon me and led me to design and build a number of buildings which are quite patently invented under the influence of Mr Hitchcock's Wright This manner of going about inventing buildings had in the past been quite acceptable and encouraged, but from 1925 onwards it became forbidden and only certain limited models could be examined for inspiration."
