I stand corrected. It was in fact Luis Sullivan, the Mentor to Frank Lloyd Wright, I was close but.....

I don't think it is always true however. Growing up in the Midwest Ive seen some fast flip'n cars that looked like salvaged vehicles. This however goes against everything I learned in the military or from my dad. They always taught outward appearance is a reflection on a person internally.

I always thought it was Wright myself. I just happened to have studied a bit or architecture. Ive always been a fan of architecture. Its amazing the things those guys can do w/ a little imagination and knowledge of materials.

Check out International Style and Zaha Hadid. She does some awesome work.

Well, this got out of hand...everyone seems focused on the matching colors thing, very few posted on the which parts part. No ones seems to want to answer that.......(Yes, I know a few of you did...and thank you)

No google used for that. It was all stuff I have recently been studying for a class. I will admit its one of the few things Ive paid attention to in my studies. I really like architecture. Well that and anatomy
