Frank Lloyd Wright Frank Lloyd Wright in my mind is the greatest architect Ive ever seen He had a big fetish with building his houses encompassed with nature and that really interested me Frank Lloyd Wright is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in modern Western architecture His radically innovative designs utilizing a building based on nature Said by Wright as organic architecture He was born in Richland Center Wisconsin June 8 1867 and died on April 9 1959 It was a standard of his passion and commitment to his field of work that he continued working right up to the time of his death After studying civil engineering at the University of Wisconsin he moved to Chicago in 1887 where he went to work as an apprentice for Louis Sullivan He began there to design and independently build private houses for some of Sullivans clients This was known as moonlighting These houses soon revealed an independent talent that was distinct from that of Sullivan Wrights houses had low sweeping rooflines hanging over uninterrupted walls of windows His plans were centered on massive brick or stone fireplaces at the heart of the house His rooms became wide open to one another and the overall configuration of his plans became more and more alike reaching out toward some real or imagined expansive horizon In contrast to the openness of those houses and as if in conflict with their immediate city environment Wrights urban buildings tend to be walled in with light entering primarily from above through skylights These features contrasted with those of his mentors Sullivan work Wrights distaste for urban environments and his embrace of the natural environment are observed in the contrasting features of some of his finest buildings in the early 1900s the Unity Church in Oak Park Illinois compared with Buffalos Martin House and Chicagos Robie House The houses are characterized by large glazed walls
