Rosenbaum House, Florence, Alabama, 1938

Usonian House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright 
for Mildred and Stanley Rosenbaum

Frank Lloyd Wright, making a connection between his own early schooling at the hands of his progressive mother (and her use of Fröbel blocks in teaching him,) said that his houses were meant to shape the minds of the children who were raised in them and that their most beneficial aspects were actually lost on the adults for whom they were nominally designed.

Jonathan Rosenbaum, one of the better film critics, academic or otherwise, grew up in the house pictured here.  I'd be interested to know if he felt that Wright's design affected his own sense of structure in films and literature?
