Title: Frank Lloyd Wright


1
Frank Lloyd Wright
  • The mother art is architecture. Without an
    architecture of our own we have no soul of our
    own civilization.
  • Architecture is the triumph of Human Imagination
    over materials, methods and men, to put man into
    possession of his own Earth. It is at least the
    geometric pattern of things, of life, of the
    human and social world. It is at best the magic
    framework of reality that we sometimes touch upon
    when we use the word order.

developing an indigenous, American
architecture that did not share design
elements with earlier, European, classical
architecture.
4
Influence of Louis Sullivans ideas of organic
architectureOrganic architecture is one which
grows naturally or organically out of the social
and technical factors among which the architect
lives and with which he must work. These factors
embrace not only the technical and utilitarian
problems of building, but also the aspirations,
ideals, and needs, both material and
psychological, of mankind.

Unity Temple 1905-1908
22
On Unity Temple F.L. WrightWhy not, then,
build a temple, not to GOD in that way more
sentimental than sense but build a temple to
man, appropriate to his uses as a meeting place,
in which to study man himself for his Gods sake?
A modern meeting-house and a good-time
place.Build a beautiful room proportioned to
this purpose. Make it beautiful in this simple
sense. A natural building for natural man.

On Organic Architecture F.L. WrightOrganic
buildings are the strength and lightness of the
spiders spinning, buildings qualified by light,
bred by native character to environment, married
to the ground.Organic architecture seeks a
superior sense of use and a finer sense of
comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.I
would like to have free architecture.
Architecture that belongs where you see it
standing and is a grace to the landscape
instead of a disgrace.
