Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, designer, writer, and educator. He designed more than 1,000 structures over a creative period of 70 years. Wright believed in designing in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.
Throughout his long and prolific career, Frank Lloyd Wright brought American architecture to the forefront. His visionary creations were strongly influenced by the natural world, and he emphasised craftsmanship while embracing technology’s ability to make design accessible to all. Wright was also highly involved with the interiors of his buildings, creating furnishings and other custom elements such as stained-glass windows to enhance the overall design. His most iconic structures, such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, are now designated as historic landmarks and attract visitors from around the world.
