BARTLESVILLE, OKLAHOMA -- The Price Tower in Bartlesville, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, hosted nine apprentices from the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture last weekend.

The group toured the only skyscraper built by the famed architect and was challenged by his innovative use of materials and attention to details.

"It's a great experience," said Scott Perkins, Curator of Collections and Exhibitions for Price Tower.  "I mean we sometimes learn more from them than they do from us, which is nice."

The group still makes the trip by car from Wisconsin to Taliesin West for the winter each year as they did when Frank Lloyd Wright was living.

"Seeing the Price Tower, this is great," said Fil Choulramountry, "the amount of work that goes into it and the detail, the amount of detail that Mr. Wright was able to put into building was absolutely fantastic."
