We have already seen how Le Corbusier accommodates architecture intimately to the exceptional needs of the automobile in the Villa Savoye. But Wright's order allows no inconsistencies: the bridge is perpendicular and analogous to the order of the house and the curving path of the automobile is not recognized. The driveway is like a path in the woods begrudgingly dotted in plan. That the car can turn is almost fortuitous.
Robert Venturi, Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture (1966), p. 58.
