How far would someone go to protect someone they love and his or herself? Go as far as murder? That is what Frank Walworth had done. As a young man taking the role as the head of the house, he would want nothing more than to keep his mother and siblings safe. On June 3, 1873, Frank asked to meet his father, Mansfield Walworth, at hotel Sturtevant House in room number 267. When Mansfield arrived a bell boy showed him to the room where his son Frank was. After entering Frank shot his father four times in different places. He immediately ran to the lobby to ask where the closet police station was stating, “I have killed my father in my room, and I’m going to surrender myself to the police.” (A Terrible Parricide) From the evidence provided It can be concluded that Frank Walworth is guilty of murdering his father, but it can be seen as an act of self-defense in order to protect his mother and his siblings, as well as himself from his threatening and abusive father.
More and more people create our hotels, schools, homes, theme parks, and several other structures. Those people are called architects, they are people who design buildings and construct them in some cases. People may also define them as scientists and artists. Frank Wright and Frank O’Gehry are similar, however, they have their own unique style and design when it comes to buildings.
Stability and balance is also achieved through the incorporation of the vertical and horizontal planes. In the southwest facade of the building the vertical slits are balanced with the horizontal planes created by the cubes, cornice and the ornamental horizontal band that runs halfway through the walls. These vertical and horizontal planes further dictate a rhythmic continuity throughout the building. Building's scale is rather modest in comparison to its site and the surrounding landscape and the smooth texture of the facade helps its integration to the environment. (Figure 4)
Frank Lile Phillips was born in Terry, Montana on August 19, 1920 to Edwin L. Phillips Jr and Verda R. Miller. By 1925, the Phillips family lived in Griswold, Iowa.

“Three may keep a secret if one of them is dead.” Many people know the saying but do not know the man behind it. People from all over the eastern hemisphere came to the new world but none have made as big or great an impact as Benjamin Franklin. He was a pioneer in the field of science. Franklin was a skilled and widely-known writer. Benjamin Franklin was a hard working politician. Benjamin Franklin’s work in science, his involvement in politics, and his writings created a better society in colonial America.
Frank Lloyd Wright, an American architect that was considered to be one of the greatest in the 20th century. He was a pioneer in the modern style of architecture. For more than 70 years, frank showed his countrymen ways to build their homes and see the world around them. He created some of the most monumental, and some of most intimate space in America. He has designed everything from banks and resorts, office buildings and churches, a filling station and a synagogue, a beer garden and an art museum.
Robert Frank was born in Zurich, Switzerland on November 9th, 1924. Frank's family life was very unstable with the constant threat of nazism, in which Robert turned to photography, to escape his home and business life. Robert was trained in photography by graphic desginers and a few photographers before actually creating his own work.
Benjamin Franklin is the greatest American scientists in 18th century, politicians and famous writer, but also publishers, printers, reporter, writer, philanthropist; it is an outstanding diplomat and inventor. He is America's first internationally acclaimed scientist and inventor and musician. Electrically significant achievements, in order to explore the power once made the famous "kite experiment", in order to further explore the electrical activity of the law, he borrowed the concept of positive and negative on mathematics, the first scientifically with positive and negative electric concept a charge properties. Many specific terms such as the creation of positive and negative electricity, conductors, batteries, charging, discharging and other world-wide vocabulary. And the charge cannot be made creation, nor destroyed the idea, later on the basis of the law of conservation of charge found. He first proposed the idea of a lightning rod, thereby manufacturing a lightning rod to avoid the disaster struck by lightning, get rid of superstition. He is an excellent politician, the old soldier of the American Revolution. He participated in the drafting of the "Declaration of Independence" and the Constitution of the United

Have you ever wanted to soar through the air like a bird? Well, the Wright Brothers made it possible with their flying machine. The two brothers were pioneers of aviation. Nowadays, airplanes are everywhere; the world would be a completely different place without them. We wouldn't be able to land on the moon, technology would not have advanced as fast, and the two brothers produced the original piloted plane that was heavier-than-air in 1903 (Ryan). They are the greatest historical figures of all time because they revolutionized transportation by making it safer and easier, they started a new era of warfare, they allowed space travel to be possible, and they demonstrated the American Dream.
Imagine a city where no green space can be found. Where concrete and steel buildings rise up and block the sun. Where streets are chaotic and gridlocked and citizens are stuffed in cramped, dirty and unsanitary apartments. This was the world of 19th-century cities where human health and happiness were disregarded for economic gain. These horrid conditions shaped the lives and ideas of three very influential men: Ebenezer Howard, Le Corbusier, and Frank Lloyd Wright. They took their own experiences and redesigned the sprawling metropolis to improve the lives of the residents. Each man created urban utopias that included green spaces, farms, and parks to improve air quality and the livelihoods of the people. Despite theses similar views, each design differed from the others. Howard, Le Corbusier, and Wright all completely reimagined the urban city in differing ways based on scale, distribution of land and technology. Their design concepts have been adapted across the globe and implemented into modern urban planning everywhere.
The aisled villa is just a villa built in the simple shape of a long
Frank Lloyd Wright was a Nature lover and an architect. He reflected on the natural world and applied existing styles to his architecture. He was born in Wisconsin, on June 8, 1867, and died in Phoenix, Arizona, on April 9, 1959, at the age of 91. His architectural career spanned two centuries and lasted for 70 years. During the last year of his life he authored a book and was working on 166 different commissions; when asked about when he would slow down, he replied when the ideas stop coming to him.
The entryways of the building come from four different sides and meet in the middle. The overall shape of the building creates different views and facades. The building was not created just on the looks of it; it is made up of a three dimensional, stimulating, tactile human thing.
The five principles of architecture that Le Corbusier proposed in 1923 can be noted in, not only Le Corbusier’s work, but also in other modern architecture, because each principle contributes to the overall aesthetic of the building, as well as providing a functional use. However, all five principles don’t have to be incorporated into one design, which is what this essay will explore. It will attempt to show that one principle can prevail over the other four, but all five are needed to create a full representation of Le Corbusier’s envision of architecture. This is shown through Le Corbusier’s villas, specifically the Villa Shodhan and this essay will analyse how the principles contrast against one another. Furthermore, a small scale design project will be created alongside the essay in an attempt to produce a unique villa through the embodiment of Le Corbusier’s five principles of architecture. Through further analysis of the Villa Shodhan I will also argue that not all principles are independent and that some principles can function efficiently without the rest. Nonetheless, Le Corbusier’s most renowned villa, Villa Savoye, utilizes all five principles; therefore, it is the most accurate image of Le Corbusier’s five principles of architecture. However, after this villa had been completed it became clear that the flat roof, which served a domestic purpose as a roof garden had failed
