Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed close to 1,000 structures of which more than 500 where built. Wright believed in designing structures which brought harmony to humanity in the natural environment, a philosophy he called Organic Architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by his design of Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture, and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States.

 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 His work includes original and innovative examples of many different building types, including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. Wright also designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and stained glass. Wright authored 20 books and many articles, and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe. His colorful personal life often made headlines, most notably for the 1914 fire and murders at his Taliesin studio. Already well-known during his lifetime, Wright was also recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as "the greatest American architect of all time".

 

 

 

The widely popular interviews with Mike Wallace in 1957, brought to light for television viewers many of the personal beliefs of Mr. Wright including his attitudes regarding religion, politics, a wide array of social matters (freedom, democracy and the like) and of course architecture and the outlook for modern society. While these interviews can possibly be regarded as an important historical commentary of modern civilization, it is also important to remember that he was a worldly figure who lived abroad on a number of occasions and was known to have a particular fondness and love for many traditional cultures that he was exposed to. More than 50 years after his passing, it seems like considering his views now may have as much or even greater value in a world struggling with politics, peace and the survival of the human race in what we hope to be a fully manifested age of ecology, regard and restoration of the natural environment. Thinking clearly it is easy to see Nature (with a capital N as referred to by FLW), in other words the Earth, as the common cultural link of all humans.

We encourage further study into the life of this master integrator and the realm of Organic Architecture.
