Architect major inspired by Wright, Fallingwater

This spring, Charles Huizar opened a fortune cookie and read the message inside: “Your dearest wish will come true.”

Weeks earlier, the architectural engineering student learned that he would visit Fallingwater, his favorite Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building.

He so enjoyed the irony that he carries the small slip of paper to this day, tucked inside a travel folder detailing his visit on Tuesday to the National Historic Landmark in Fayette County.

Huizar, 21, is a sophomore studying architectural engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.
