Here are a few comments on your note:
* Wright was a drop from civil engineering school.
* Wright did hang out with Sullivan, left Sullivan, and designed stuff
nothing like Sullivan's spagetti buildings.
* Corbusier the cubist painter (you know two eyes on the same side of the
face) did start the International Style of architecture--blame his cousin(?)
Jeanerette on the concrete problems--he was one of the pioneers for
reinforced concrete. 
* The real point of my message was/is "people can design their own cohousing
projects better than architects can"-- how to prove it? --let cohousing
architects submit their "designs"-- Jan Gehl and myself would select one or
more of the "designs" to be evaluated--the evaluation would take place and be
published--any takers?
