Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called “the best all-time work of American architecture”. His creative period spanned more than 70 years.

“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”

“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.”

“No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill. Belonging to it. Hill and house should live together each the happier for the other.”

“There is nothing more uncommon than common sense.”

““So here I stand before you preaching organic architecture: declaring organic architecture to be the modern ideal and the teaching so much needed if we are to see the whole of life, and to now serve the whole of life, holding no ‘traditions’ essential to the great TRADITION. Nor cherishing any preconceived form fixing upon us either past, present or future, but—instead—exalting the simple laws of common sense—or of super-sense if you prefer—determining form by way of the nature of materials…”

“I believe in God, only I spell it Nature.”

“Think simple’ as my old master used to say – meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest terms, getting back to first principles.”

“Harvard takes perfectly good plums as students, and turns them into prunes.”
