Frank Lloyd Wright: American Architecture
This house is in a remote area in Pennsylvania and has a 30-foot waterfall built into the house. This house was designed to put its occupants close to their natural surroundings and is more of a family getaway then a home. According to franklloydwright.org, this is Wright’s crowning achievement and the American Institute of Architects calls it the “Best all-time work in American Architecture.” This house is amazing to look at from the water fall to the way it looks like it is made into the mountain. This piece of architecture is truly unbelievable.
During Frank Lloyd Wright’s career, he accomplished many incredible things, however he wasn’t very popular amongst his peers and the American public until about 50 years after his death on April 9, 1959 in Phoenix Arizona. Now, he has made a bigger impact on architecture than any other American architect ever and has inspired thousands around the world. He began his work when the United States was struggling not only find its identity in architecture, but also its identity as an entire nation. His style and thought process were well advanced for his time, which is why very few architects have tried to recreate his unorthodox style pointing to how genius he truly was. Frank Lloyd Wright was a one of a kind mind that we may never see again in the history of the world. He didn’t just change the way we build houses and buildings and the way we look at architecture, he changed the way we live
