Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect who designed more than 1,000 structures during his lifetime. 532 of these structures were built, including the famous Fallingwater home in Pennsylvania. Wright's style, which he called organic architecture, played up the connection between man-made spaces and their surrounding environment. He designed skyscrapers, the Guggenheim Museum, and even a gas station, but he is best known for creating distinctive family homes.
