I wonder what Frank Lloyd Wright would have designed for a lighthouse.

That's an interesting thought, island. My first thought when I read the story that the Kahn mentioned in the story was the other well known architect Albert Kahn, until I read it closer. I don't know if he's related to the Louis, as he's from a family of 8 sibs, but I daresay Albert Kahn would have done a creditable job. He (Albert) already did one lighthouse, the nations's only marble lighthouse, the William Livingstone Memorial on Belle Isle in Detroit.

I think if F.L. Wright would have designed a lighthouse we would have had stained glass windows at the top. Or the first stained glass Fresnel lens. :lol:
