The previous post about music and Frank Lloyd Wright, and knowing how he loved music, made me think of his Guggenheim Museum as a giant cochlea - the organ of the inner ear that converts mechanical vibrations into electrical impulses.

    And inside

    His Guggenheim also converts our vibrations and impulses and allows us to take in sensations.

    As Wright said,
    Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
