An Architect’s Dream

robiehouse I figured out what I want to be when I grow up.  I want to be an architect.  First of all, I want to be an architect because I really like to design buildings and build them on Roblox.  Second of all, I want to be an architect because I have all these great ideas for new houses of the future.  I even have a cool design for a really strong bridge.  I had a really good idea for an eco-friendly city, but Kayla teased and criticized me about it.  So, I gave that idea up, but I still want to be an architect.

We went to see the Robie House that was in Blue Balliett’s Wright 3.  The home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the same architect who designed the Guggenheim, the round building.  I don’t usually enjoy visiting buildings, but this one had a very interesting design.  It was interesting because it had all these art glass windows, and when you’re in the area that leads to the front door, it feels like you’re already inside.  Plus, when you’re inside, it feels like you’re still outside.  It’s an inside-out house.

Another thing we did today was we went to the Chicago Blues Festival.  It wasn’t my ideal time for a Saturday.  There are a few reasons why I didn’t really enjoy it that much.  One was that it had just rained so everything was soaked.  Although I guess I should be happy that it wasn’t still raining.  Another reason was that all the singers were yelling, and it was so loud, I was afraid that I would lose my hearing before I even reached my 20s.

Wrap it all up, and it was just an ok Saturday.

Does anyone live in the house you visited? I'd like to visit the Frank Loyd house someday. What type of entertainment was at the festival other than loud music?

Well, for starts, there was more loud music, and more loud music. No one lives in the house now, but they used to.
