Over his 70-year career, the 532 complete works of Frank Lloyd Wright have inspired thousands of aspiring creators. But for David Romero, it is the unfinished works that influence him. The Spanish architect is taking the 600 designs Wright left behind, along with some demolished projects, and turning them into ultra-realistic 3D renderings. Through his website Hooked on the Past, Romero has already virtually completed a number of Wright's works including the E.A. Smith house, Trinity Chapel, Butterfly Bridge, and the Larkin Administration Building. The designer works with the existing blueprints, plans, elevations, perspectives, photographs from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to model the structures in AutoCAD before adding the fine details in Autodesk 3ds Max. Romero is currently working on the Ocotillo Desert Camp but plans to explore other modern designers in the furniture in an effort to keep the spirit of 20th-century architecture alive.
