    Hi, Mr John Lobell, I'm a second year architecture student at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal in South Africa, and I absolutely love the history of Architecture course. Thank you so much for these amazing videos, I find them absolutely insightful, and not to mention incredibly helpful on some info that we may not have covered in class. Once again, thank you so much and I hope you continue to make many more videos for students like me.

    After touring the Martin House in Buffalo, I searched for Frank Lloyd Wright videos and found your channel. I enjoyed your videos on FLW so much that I'm watching all your videos. I especially enjoyed your comparisons of East and West perceptions. I'm not studying architecture, just appreciating and learning. Thanks for the interesting presentation all this information, Mr. Lobell. Has anyone told you that you sound like Chris Matthews on MSNBC? 😉
