Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most iconic American architects of all time. Wright believed in designing structures that reflected humanity and its environment. He called this philosophy organic architecture, which was best exemplified by Fallingwater (a house designed in 1935 in rural southwestern Pennsylvania), one of the most famous works of American architecture. His innovation was exemplified in many structures including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. He also designed various pieces of furniture as well as stained glass. Wright was also the author of numerous books and articles and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe.
To this day, Wright is recognized as the greatest American architect of all time. His legacy is one of America "foremost cultural treasures. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this product support the Foundation's conversation and education programs.
