Frank Lloyd Wright

“A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.”

Frank Lloyd Wright, 1867-1959, was a world-famous architect who founded a form of architecture based on a building’s ability to harmonize with its environment, called “Organic Architecture.” During the U.S. depression, he designed a distinctly American style that was affordable to the common working person, and created a series of small, simple homes which he believed to represent the democratic ideals of the United States. He called them Usonian, an abbreviation for United States of America.
