Everyone working in architecture field must know how great Frank Lloyd Wright designs are. The prominent American architect, who was born in 1867, invented such a great treasure that even ordinary people could trace back nowadays through his widely-known works.
A number of extraordinary public buildings and houses are left for us todays so that we can see how magnificent his brilliant visionary perspective is. Some of you might have heard about the Prairie style which is boldly recognized for its fascinating horizontal lines and American-styled architecture as its nickname. Well, if you did not know who first came with the idea, then you know who the man is.
The style was originally invented by Frank Lloyd Wright, supported by a number of his architect pals in his era. It was invented out of Wright’s concern on creating something which could define who American is, based on their living building’s style.
Previously, European houses dominated much of America’s land which bothered him to produce something than can be said as purely American’s. The Prairie style is much recognized from its low ceiling and striking horizontal lines which were surely not common in that time.
In addition, what todays’ people can inherit from Frank Lloyd Wright designs is that his architectural inspiration which came from his awareness of creating something of the nature and for the nature.
Wright emphasized his determination of designing buildings which do not just stand upright on the land, but of the land. According to him, the construction and design of buildings or any architectural products should be able to flow smoothly with the nature, because basically that is what it is supposed to be.
One of his works, the magnificent Fallingwater proves how much he adored the unity shaped out from the bond between the building and the nature around it. The building looks as if it is a part of the low waterfall and the trees. It emphasizes Wright’s distinct view on how he understood what mankind should make out of the land.
Last but not least, Wright’s works were much about simplicity. The lines and shapes attributed to the buildings are looking distinct but still natural. It is possible for Wright was able to conjoin the elements used in the buildings to the surrounding natural space. This just makes the building be in harmony with the nature, as what todays’ people trying to do.
