Ayn Rand wrote about architecture as if it is a religion, didn't she?
And have you read about Robert Moses in New York?
Actually, the main character in "The Fountainhead" is based on FLW. Apparently he was not flattered by it. When Hollywood was doing the film version of the book, FLW was hired to do the architectural drawings. If memory serves me correctly, at first he agreed and then backed out. Ayn Rand also withdrew her support of the pic halfway through production.
I do know the name Robert Moses ( they named a highway after him on Long Island) but don't know much about him.
