Frank Lloyd Wright

Starting Point by Lynnea Schwieters

Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the greatest architects of the 20th century, believed that beautiful environments informed human behavior. He was forward thinking for his time - he loved America and strived to create buildings that were based solely on America's democratic values and human dignity. He developed open floors plans with spaces that flowed and opened out to each other.  He also designed every detail of the project including furniture, lighting, fabrics, and often stained glass.  Walking into a Wright masterpiece is like being taken into another dimension.  "A building is not just a place to be. It is a way to be" - Wright
