Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is one of the most famous architects of the entire twentieth century. Counted among the founding peers of the Modern Movement, he was also the initiator of the Organic Architecture school of thought, which pursued the creation of a harmonious environment in which man and nature could coexist side by side. A principle well represented by his most famous project, the House on the Waterfall, so well integrated with the natural context in which it stands that it hardly seems like a human creation. Born into a poor family, he always felt deeply American and was strongly influenced by the myth of individualism and pioneers, which led him to try his hand above all on the architectural typology of the single-family villa, as in the famous series of his Prairie Houses. However, he was also deeply influenced by the East, so much so that he lived for years in Japan, where he created works such as the famous Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. His American works, including the Taliesin West School of Architecture and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, are included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The furnishings he designed are produced exclusively by Cassina, while his lamps appear in the catalog of the Japanese brand Yamagiwa.
