Buildings are more than just places that shelter us from the elements while working or relaxing — these structures affect the feel of our landscape, our moods and, frankly, our lives. Home always feels like home, but when your personal space is both uniquely beautiful and comforting, well, you've hit the jackpot there, haven't you? Charles and Henry Greene, brothers and architects who are considered to be stars of the American Arts and Crafts movement, designed such brilliant spaces, ones with clean lines and comfy, warm wood interiors, and these two early-1900s architects even have ties to St. Louis. To learn more about their style and to find out what links them to the city we call home, be sure to attend "The Art and Craft of Greene & Greene: The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park Annual Lecture," delivered at 7 p.m. at the Missouri History Museum (Lindell Boulevard and DeBaliviere Avenue; 314-746-4599 or www.mohistory.org). This free talk is given by Bruce Smith, an expert on the architects; pick up his book, Greene & Greene: Masterworks, in the museum's gift shop, where it will be for sale.
