2012 Nov- Frank Lloyd Wright

September 16th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin in 1867 and died in 1959.  Wright was an American architect, often considered to be the “father of modern architecture”. He designed both domestic structures, such as the Fallingwater, and non-domestic structures, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Wright believed that form and function were one – in other words, he thought the shapes of his buildings should be determined by the purposes they served. He was inspired by nature and used natural materials – bricks, stone, wood – in their natural state. Wright believed that each house or building should be a part of its natural surroundings.
