Frank Lloyd Wright: the evolution of Architecture

To the surprise of many all the successful human beings, scientists and artist are unfortunately born in America, frank Lloyd wright too, before changing the world of architecture into a newly painted wall, frank wright did graduate as civil engineer from the University of Wisconsin and he was born there too ( Richland center, Wisconsin – June 8, 1867).

Like every youth, frank started working as a draftsman in Chicago architectural firm at the age of 20 and started his own firm at the age of 25 after practicing and learning and also defining the new shade to the architectural field.

If you google for the greatest architecture in the history of humankind, frank Lloyd wright the name will pop up in every website you’re looking at, that’s the contribution frank wright did for architecture.

Apart from all the achievements, histories, appreciations that frank wright did, that changed the evolution of architecture is its way of simplified building which has the connection of nature within itself.

The prairie architecture:

By chance if you go into the Midwest of Chicago and see houses that are deeply attached to the ground with largely horizontal in shape and have larger space inside the house with row windows, don’t be surprised, that is called “the prairie architecture”

Frank wright believed that a house is a public place and it should have larger spaces with the touch of nature in it, so he created the so-called “prairie architecture”, horizontal in shape, strongly attached to the ground with fewer rooms separate the house and mostly wooden interiors and furniture, that’s the concept of prairie architecture and it is servicing its purpose after hundred years successfully, all the modern houses and architecture after the 19th century is influenced by the design of prairie architecture style.

We can see the prairie architecture house mostly In the Midwest region, Chicago and around, Robie House is an iconic example of it.

Organic architecture:

After submitting the greatest prairie architecture style, frankly did another work of magic called organic architecture, like the human organism the organic architecture connects with all of its design ones to another and the entire house can be intermixed with one another, to contribute the work with nature largely rather than modernity, frank wright did used stones and woods as the two core material to structure the organic architecture.

The organic architecture looks more like the high fashion house with the natural materials, frank used his creativity to structure the design by painting, covering, plastering and alternating woods and stones to match the fashion, the organic architecture houses are intertwined within nature.

Even though being looks like the royal and luxuries house, the organic architecture indeed is a work of nature, one can feel the connection with the nature inside the organic architecture buildings, that’s how frank wright become the legendary architecture and to till the day we are speaking about his magnificent work.

The falling water in Pennsylvania is a great identity of architecture, a  house in the mid of forest with falling water underneath, sounds like magic? That’s what frank wright created and gave it to the world of architecture.
