“Space Is The Breath Of Art”-Frank Lloyd
He was named in 1991 “the finest American architect of all times” by the American Institute of Architects. Over 500 architectural works, including many masterpieces, were constructed in his lifetime by Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959). Few architects in history could say that thanks to the widespread distribution of his designs and long-term education in the school he established, he had led more young people to pursue careers in architecture than Frank Lloyd Wright.
Wright is particularly fascinating because of his unique history: his work serves as a bridge between traditional architecture in the early 19th century and modernism as a followers of Louis Sullivan. Although some of his later work is formally modernist, the earlier period retains its sense.
Wright sought to define a singular American architectural style in many of his works. Wright’s houses illustrated this best: he was very closely linked to his “Prairie Style,” with buildings such as his Robie House, which have long, shallow roofs and horizontal lines, which reflect his country’s landscapes. This ideal was later founded in 1903 by the writer James Duff Law as the name “Usonian,” which was mainly forgotten in order to distinguish Americans from the ones of Canada and Latin America. While incorporating modernism in these designs, Wright kept Prairie Style low, horizontal lines.
Wright called her design ‘organic,’ implying she was in perfect harmony with her environment, as though she had grown as natural as the tree, but without forced imitation. This concept is seen in his iconic Fallingwater House, where the balconies imitate the below rock stratification falls, and in his SC Johnson Research Tower, where the interiors of the central trunk are cantilevered. Broadacre city reflected its love of nature and the American landscape, its concept of a broad, rural area with a very low level of human density.

Wright is the ideal of the architect for many: his design was meticulous and meticulous, his lone genius, and his behaviour was often brash. His vision, however, is clear and the timeless nature of his work shows how strong it was.
