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. Popularly, Simon and Garfunkel dedicated a song to FLW, at least in the most simple interpretation of the song “So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright.” • In this slew of videos Frank elaborates on the critical nature of good architecture and how proper architecture remains “organic.” Included here as well is Frank delineating some specifics of his distinct style. Lastly, we’ve thrown in Frank taking issue with those titled intellectuals, thereby libeling this entire Instagram page. • “Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.” • Was Frank Lloyd Wright at all successful in starting the organic revolution he attempted to start?
