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.
