She also highlights the often overlooked beauty of the cottage and illustrates how it is emblematic of Wright and Jensens holistic Prairie Style approach to building and landscape architecture. The size of the Gardeners Cottage allows us to witness Wrights aesthetic concerns in small detail and to understand his ideas on a more accessible and livable scale.
