Milton Stricker (1926 – 2008)
During his last semester studying architecture at Carnegie Mellon University, Milton Stricker drove uninvited to Frank Lloyd Wright’s home, where he was initially turned away. Down to his last nickel, Stricker begged Wright to accept him as an apprentice for the Frank Lloyd Wright Fellowship. After learning that Stricker had been raised by his impoverished grandparents, after being abandoned by his parents during the Depression- and had spent two years washing dishes, Wright accepted him tuition free.
Stricker apprenticed under Wright for one year, and became the first of Wright’s apprentices to be licensed to practice in Washington. In 1962, Stricker opened his own office where he continued Wright’s style of organic architecture. This unique style can be seen in his “organic” V and Y-shaped plans in his 130+ projects. Near the end of his career, Stricker wrote Design Through Abstraction: The Wright Source to Art and Architecture, which provided insight into the artistic abstraction process.
