Frank Lloyd Wright is considered to be one of the most iconic American architects of all time. A pioneer in developing an architectural style that was organic, he designed structures that reflected humanity and its environment.
Fallingwater, one of the most famous works of American architecture exemplifies this organic architecture. As a result, the weekend home has won numerous awards. The house elegantly integrates itself into the landscape, becoming part of the waterfall itself. Its cantilevered engineering was a brilliant addition as well. Therefore, it allowed him to deliver on the space requirements that the client was interested in.
Wright’s innovation remains in many structures including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums to name few. The architect's skills helped him designing various pieces of furniture as well as stained glass. In addition, Wright was also the author of numerous books and articles. He became a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe as well. To this day, he remains the greatest American architect of all time.
