About Frank Lloyd Wright - Statue - Sprite with Cubes

Frank Lloyd Wright was the leader of the Prairie School movement and his creative period spanned more than seventy years. Already well known during his life, he was recognized as “the greatest American architect of all time” by the American Institute of Architects in 1991, and he remains an influential figure to this day. The ever-inventive Frank Lloyd Wright attempted to keep his commitment to an “architecture of democracy,” by finding ways to incorporate the structure fully into its site in order to ensure a fluid, dynamic exchange between the interior of the structure and the natural environment outside. The implied message of Wright’s new architecture was space, not mass. In the late 1930s, he acted on a cherished dream to provide good architectural designs for the less prosperous people by adapting the ideas of his prairie houses to plans for smaller, less expensive dwellings with neither attics nor basements. These residences, known as Usonian houses became templates for suburban housing developments in the post-World War II housing boom. More details on Frank Lloyd Wright - Statue - Sprite with Cubes:

Wright
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.
