Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect. He designed more than 1,000 structures over a period of 70 years. Wright believed designing in harmony with humanity and its environment was important, a philosophy he called organic architecture.
Wright was a careful student of architecture. He saw the world through it. He once said, “The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own, we have no soul of our own civilization.” Indeed, our home tells the world what is important to us. At every size and scale, architecture influences how we feel and how we live. Whether it ingratiates or intimidates, it never fails to define us. There is no architecture more intimate than a home we design for ourselves.
