A book from Taschen's Basic Architecture series.
From skyscrapers to synagogues, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) was an architect whose designs fundamentally changed the way we think about buildings. His structures demonstrate his philosophy of organic architecture, which aimed to create harmony between humanity and the environment through a combination of materials, forms, and visual perspectives. Named the greatest American architect of all time by the American Institute of Architects, key examples of Wright’s work can be found in Buffalo, Chicago and across Montana but his influence transcends national boundaries. Many features of modern suburban homes the world over date back to Wright, including open plan living, slab foundations, and simplified and efficient construction techniques.
