Fountainhead

The Fountainhead: it is said that the writer, Ayn Rand, used Frank Lloyd Wright as model for the main character, Howard Roark. When reading I always had Le Corbusier in my mind; probably because at some point in the book Roark is looking to the sky admiring one of his own designs. And I had seen that picture in another book, "Delirious New York", years ago. Time to recycle.
Het boek "De eeuwige bron", model voor de architect Howard Roark was waarschijnlijk F.L.Wright, ik zag altijd Le Corbusier voor me.

Mooi man, en nu maak je ook nog een collage, en verlaat je de reproductieve kunst en zet je je rijke fantasie neer. Prachtig.
