Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright ; Richland Center, June 8, 1867-Phoenix, April 9, 1959) was an American architect, one of the main masters of twentieth century architecture. A precursor of organic architecture, he was the initiator of the Prairie School movement, developing the Usonian concept of housing.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Biography

The studio and Frank Lloyd Wright’s house in Oak Park, Illinois, according to Wright’s own design (1898).

House of Walter Gale (1893) in Queen Anne style, with window bands and cantilevered porch according to the aesthetic of Wright.

Frank Lloyd Wright was born into a family of pastors of British origin, and spent much of his childhood and adolescence on a farm in Wisconsin, in full contact with nature, which years later conditioned his conception of the architecture.

He entered to study engineering at the University of Wisconsin, but after two years he decided to abandon the career and moved to Chicago, where he began to work in the studio of Joseph Lyman Silsbee, but considering him an architect too “conventional », Frank Lloyd Wright decided to leave that job and start working with Louis Sullivan, who had his studio in the Auditorium Building (Chicago) and is also part of the so-called Chicago School. To this man, Frank would remember him with affection and respect.

During these years he designed the Winslow House, in River Forest, Illinois, the first of the famous series of prairie houses. These are single-family houses, strongly integrated into their environment. The roofs protrude considerably from the facades and the windows form a continuous horizontal sequence. The central nucleus of the houses constitutes a great chimney, around which the stays are arranged. Other houses designed in this style were, for example, Willitts, in Highland Park, Illinois, and D. Martin, in Buffalo, New York.

Wright created a new concept with regard to the interior spaces of the buildings, which he applied in his meadow houses, but also in his other works. Wright rejects the existing criterion until then of the interior spaces as closed rooms and isolated from the others, and designs spaces in which each room or room is opened to the others, with which it obtains a great visual transparency, a profusion of light and a sense of spaciousness and openness. To differentiate some areas from others, it uses divisions of light material or ceilings of different height, avoiding unnecessary solid enclosures. With all this, Wright established for the first time the difference between “defined spaces” and “closed spaces”.

Wright also studied Mayan architecture with great attention and applied a reminiscent Mayan style to many of his homes, known as Revival Maya.
