Frank Lloyd Wright, universally revered as one of the world's great architects, presented "The Art and Craft of the Machine" as a lecture to the Chicago Arts and Craft Society in March of 1901. In his speech, now considered "one of the seminal events in twentieth-century architecture," Wright took on one of the basic issues facing artists in the modern era -- the role technology plays in the artistic process. He called for artists to embrace technology, though less as tools of the trade than as inspiration and a force for change in how the artist views his or her work. This text represents the entirety of the speech Frank Lloyd Wright presented.
