Frank Lloyd Wright (8. juni 18679. april 1959) var en amerikansk arkitekt, som udviklede en særlig amerikansk udgave af modernismen i kritisk opposition til både historicismen og Bauhaus-arkitekturen og den senere International Style.

Han betragtes som en af de mest prominente og indflydelsesrige arkitekter i første halvdel af 1900-tallet.[1]

En liste over Frank Lloyd Wrights arbejder findes her en:List of Frank Lloyd Wright works.


Frank Lloyd Wright har af eftertiden fået utallige anerkendelser for sin nyskabende arkitektur. UNESCO har under titlen “The 20th-century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright” optaget otte af hans bygninger på listen over verdens kulturarv, se også her og UNESCO's Verdensarvsliste (Amerika).[2][3]

Lego's Architecture line includes a very nice rendition of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, built in Mill Run, Pennsylvania in the 1930s and famed for incorporating the terrain and the waterfall as major architectural elements. The Lego version, rated at Age 16+ and consisting of 811 pieces, costs $99.99 and is a very nice 3-hour build.

The completed set - quite an awesome sight. This is my first Architecture set that represents something I have not seen in person, though based on photographs of the real Fallingwater, the essence is well captured in this set. To allow further appreciation of the architecture, this set was designed modularly; the terrain is one separate build, the foundation of the house a second separate build, and each of the three floors, plus the roof, are all separate builds as well, sliding out easily.

Aline Barnsdall Complex (9736565582).jpg

The Aline Barnsdall Complex in Los Angeles, a national landmark (1922). Barnsdall was the heiress to Theodore Newtown Barnsdall, who made his fortune during the Pennsylvania oil rush. Aline dedicated her life to radical causes and art, supporting Emma Goldman and producing an independent theater in Chicago. She commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design a new house for her. Furthermore, she asked that it be a capable complex to house her needs for her theatrical community. Wright was busy with the Imperial Hotel in Japan at the time and wasn't able to supervise contruction. The house quickly exceeded cost expectations and Barnsdall grew weary of the project. Barnsdall gave the house away after only a few years, donating it to the California Art Club. Known to most of the world as the Hollyhock House, it is perhaps Wright's third most famous house commission after Fallingwater and the Robie House. Despite its gorgeous architecture, the house was rather impractical.
