Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright

Wright was an American architect and interior designer who believed in creating structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. He was a leader of the Prairie School movement and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States. Though Wright’s inspiration undoubtedly came from japanese art, in which he was also a dealer, his decorative arts such as furniture or stained glass were incredibly modern. His most important commissions during the Prairie period included the Joseph Husser and Francis W. Little Houses, the Larkin Administration building and the Avery Coonley House.
