Frank Lloyd Wright
Architect, draftsman, furniture and interior designer and author, Wright is internationally recognized as one of the most important figures in 20th century architecture. However, unlike other architects whose success and reputation are measured in part by the dispersal of their ideals into the everyday landscape, Wright remained an individualist who made only a slight impact on the evolution of 20th century architecture. Instead, his fame is derived from its intuitive ability to mold space within an environment and within space itself. He is best known for his "Prairie style" homes, efficient office buildings, and innovative furniture and chinaware designs.
