Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator who designed more than 1000 structures in harmony with humanity and its environment in a style called “Organic Architecture”. This architectural concept was well illustrated in the “Falling Water” building (1935), one of his best works. Wright was the leader of the Prairie School of Architecture in Chicago; however, he began as apprentice of Louis Sullivan who designed great and renown structures characterised by organic ornamental designs.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home and Studio in Oak Park, Illinois was built in the Prairie architecture style. The Prairie Houses (Late 19 beginning of 20th century), were characterised by open plans and horizontal lines. The style borrowed elements from the American Art & Craft movement, the Classical Revival, as well as the Idealist Romantic ideologies which originated in Germany but quickly spread to England, France, and beyond, reached America around the year 1820. The Classical Revival ideologies philosophy is: “Better homes would created better people”.
