Title: Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright
  • June 8, 1867 April 9, 1959

Frank Lloyd Wright
  • Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect,
    interior designer, writer, and educator.

Frank Lloyd Wright
  • Wright promoted organic architecture
  • Fallingwater, is a house designed by American
    architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1935 in rural
    southwestern Pennsylvania.
  • The house was built partly over a waterfall in
    Bear Run at Rural Route 1 in the Mill Run section
    of Pennsylvania.
  • Hailed by TIME magazine shortly after its
    completion as Wright's "most beautiful job," the
    home inspired Ayn Rand's novel The Fountainhead,
    and is listed among Smithsonian magazine's Life
    List of 28 places "to visit before's too

  • The Robie House is one of the best known examples
    of Prairie Style architecture. The term was
    coined by architectural critics and historians
    (not by Wright) who noticed how the buildings and
    their various components (e.g. doors, windows,
    furniture, tapestries, etc.) owed their design
    influence to the landscape and plant life of the
    midwest prairie of the United States.

  • Prairie houses were characterized by low,
    horizontal lines that were meant to blend with
    the flat landscape around them. Typically, these
    structures were built around a central chimney,
    consisted of broad open spaces instead of
    strictly defined rooms, and deliberately blurred
    the distinction between interior space and the
    surrounding terrain.

  • Hollyhock House is Wright's first Los Angeles
    project. Built between 1919 and 1921, it
    represents his earliest efforts to develop a
    regionally appropriate style of architecture for
    Southern California. Wright himself referred to
    it as California Romanza, using a musical term
    meaning "freedom to make one's own form".Taking
    advantage of Los Angeles' dry, temperate climate,
    Hollyhock House is a remarkable combination of
    house and gardens. In addition to the central
    garden court, each major interior space adjoins
    an equivalent exterior space, connected either by
    glass doors, a porch, pergola or colonnade. A
    series of rooftop terraces further extend the
    living space and provide magnificent views of the
    Los Angeles basin and the Hollywood Hills.

  • Frank Lloyd Wright created the Guggenheim Museum
    as a series of organic shapes. Circular forms
    spiral down down like the interior of a shell.
    Visitors to the museum begin on the upper level
    and follow a sloping ramp downward through
    connected exhibition spaces. At the core, an open
    rotunda offers views of artwork on several
