WRIGHT Frank Lloyd


USA (1867-1959)

Born in Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the best known US architect. After graduating, he becomes assistant of the architect Louis Sullivan, the father of skyscrapers. Wright rapidly founded his own firm and developed a personal style known as ‘Prairie’ which emphasizes simplicity and an organic architecture for residential designs and commercial buildings. His home in the suburbs of Chicago ‘Oak Park’ is now known as his first architectural masterpiece. In 1893, he conceives the Winslow House with horizontal and open interior spaces, an example of his organic architecture. Author of more than 400 projects, on more than seven decades, Frank Lloyd Wright has revolutionized living spaces thanks to his iconic architectures such as the Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania, or even the Guggenheim museum in New York.
