Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the most prominent architects in American history. During his lifetime, he designed over 1,000 structures, including churches, schools, museums, and residential houses, eight of which were acknowledged as UNESCO World Heritage Sites in July 2019. Mr. Wright is recognized as “the greatest American architect of all time” by the American Institute of Architects. His design philosophy of “organic architecture” which emphasizes the harmony of human structures and nature, still influences generations today. One of the most famous designs that best exemplifies Mr. Wright’s philosophy is a house called, “Fallingwater.” The most famous one was The Robbie House, built in 1906. Another of his famous designs is the Unity Temple. Frank Lloyd Wright passed away in 1959, but his legacy lives on. The good building is not one that hurts the landscape, but one which makes the landscape more beautiful than it was before the building was built.
