Eye on the Designer: Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most well-known and lauded American architects. Though he is most famous for his architectural feats, he was also an interior designer, writer and educator. In his lifetime, he designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were seen through to completion. His belief was that man-made structures should be in harmony with nature and the environment, which he called “organic architecture.” One of his most favored projects, a residence called Fallingwater, is a prime example of this philosophy.

You can see his unique perspective and ingenious way of expressing it throughout this small selection of his work that I’ve gathered for this post. It is truly inspiring to see how his work has held up over the years and will continue to remain classics long into the future.
