Born June 8th, 1867 in Richland Center, Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright came from humble beginnings. He knew from a young age that he wanted to be an architect and was supported in this pursuit by his mother. Wright’s works represent the pinnacle of American modernist architecture. You can find his works all over the county - from Illinois and Wisconsin to California and Arizona to Oklahoma. From Pennsylvania’s Fallingwater private house to New York’s Guggenheim museum.
The trademark of Wright’s work was a concept called “organic architecture.” Wright believed that structures should be designed in harmony with humanity and nature. Frank Lloyd Wright also excelled in the fields of interior design, writing and education. He was a prominent dealer in Japanese art and lived in Japan for a number of years.
