Famous people in history: Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright was a major figure in American architecture, combining elegance with technological advances, and creating environments which served practical functions as well as complimenting the natural surroundings. Some of his best known residential work was built around the turn of the 20th century while he lived in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, IL.
Born in 1867, just two years after the American Civil War ended, Wright crafted 1,100 designs that changed the way architecture interacted with nature and our daily lives. The 16-year project for the Guggenheim Museum, located in New York City, is a testament to his adventurous design aesthetic. Frank Lloyd Wright died in 1959, the same year the museum was completed.
