Frank Lloyd Wright Houses

 

This architect is considered the father of American modernism for very good reasons.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses, and 1000+ architectural works overall, paved the way to modern and contemporary architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright’s believe that humans should build and live in harmony with nature, was the foundation of what he called organic architecture. Probably the best representation of his modernist values is the celebrated Fallingwater, built on a water fall.

In this section we feature some of the projects that Wright worked on during his prolific career: the Frank Lloyd Wright houses we find most representative of his revolutionary vision for modern architecture.

A decade after finishing the SC Johnson Administration building in Racine, Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright started the construction of the Research and Development Tower.
The 1950s building for SC Johnson was the home to many of the company’s most well-known inventions and was in need of lab facilities for their rising research and development department.

The Frank Lloyd Wright’s Zimmerman House, completed in 1952, is what the architect described as a Usonian Homes.

Tour Frank Lloyd Wright ‘s Taliesin West With MidCenturyHome

At the age of 72, Frank Lloyd Wright decided to build his winter home in Arizona: he called it Taliesin West.
Wright loved the Arizona desert. He found the rocky landscape inspiring when he visited it in the 1920s, and when, after he had been ill with pneumonia, his doctor suggested a winter relocation to a hotter environment, the architect jumped at the chance to build a new winter base there.
