Best kept secret about Grand Rapids

The Meyer May House by Frank Lloyd Wright, located right here in Grand Rapids. Built in 1908 and restored in 1987 - an awesome site.

Favorite medium and why

Organic architecture. One of my favorite artists is Frank Lloyd Wright. I'm fascinated by his prairie-style houses, which are still popular in our time. I would love to live in one!
