The Oresund Bridge opened in 2000 and allows the passage of cars and trains between Denmark and Sweden. From Sweden the bridge turns into a tunnel under the sea and reappears in Denmark. The bridge could not be too low or it would interfere with shipping vessels. It also could not be too high or it would interfere with the nearby airport. An underwater tunnel was the solution to the problem.

A modern engineering marvel! There are two tunnels, one for cars and the other for trains. The tunnel length is a tick under 10 miles!

I have been in the Frank Bott house in Kansas City when I was young, way back when. Friends of the family owned it.

There is a house he designed here in Wichita, KS "Allen house" I've been to many years ago.
The one thing I remember that I believed was in one of his other homes, that had brick/stone floors the Owner contacted Wright after replacing the dinner table and bitched about his chairs all wobbled on the floor of the dining room. Wright told them to replace them with 3 legged chairs like the original, which solved the wobbling.
