American Architect


Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright is considered by many people to be the greatest architect in American history. He grew up in the Midwest and throughout his life he was greatly influenced by the landscapes of his childhood and nature. To Wright, architecture was not just about buildings, it was about nourishing the lives of those sheltered within them. What were needed were environments to inspire and offer repose to the inhabitants. He called his architecture “organic” and felt that his buildings must harmonize both with their inhabitants as well as with their environment. 


Wright lived during a time of unprecedented scientific and technological advances and he took full advantage of the opportunities of the advances and changes brought. In the process, he transformed the way we live. 


After viewing images of some of Wright’s most famous buildings, students were inspired to create their own architectural model or drawing. Ask your student to tell you what they learned about Frank Lloyd Wright.
