lindholmFinally, some pleasant news related (however tangentially) to the oil industry: Minnesota Public Radio and MNSpeak are celebrating the 50th anniversary of what might be America’s most aesthetically pleasing gas station—the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Lindholm Service Station in Cloquet, Minnesota.

This milestone inspired me to browse images of other Wright structures, whose practical designs and clean lines ensure a calming, refreshing effect on the viewer. You can browse his work at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s website and view a list of the many public sites designed by the architect, in case you want to see one up close.
