The most famous of America’s architects, Frank Lloyd Wright designed over 800 structures in his career spanning eight decades. But more than just prolific, Frank Lloyd Wright was a driven advocate for design in a total sense. Wright sought beauty in every dimension.
Frank Lloyd Wright held to the coordination of all elements as the defining principle of the architectural function. Wright’s structures fit, absolutely, into the natural environment, and his works were never without specific provision for nature’s glory. By incorporating structure, furnishings, garden ornaments, planters, the site itself and all that surrounded it, Frank Lloyd Wright created what he termed “Organic Design”.
Plants look more lovely, Wright claimed, when presented in the content of the clean geometric shapes of a building and its extensions. As with all other ornamental furnishings, Frank Lloyd Wright designed these urns himself as strong finishing elements to his structures.
