Frank Lloyd Wright's quote:
"All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable. "
Frank Lloyd Wright, 1867-1959, American
architect, considered one of the greatest figures of 20th-century
architecture. However, both the man and his work were controversial
during his lifetime. Wright avoided anything that might be called a
personal style. Through all his designs, he was guided by principles
that he termed organic architecture. By this he meant that every
building should relate harmoniously to its natural surroundings and
that a building should not be a static, boxlike enclosure with openings
cut into them.
Ironically, the work for which Wright is best known is one of his largest and least democratic works: Fallingwater,
built in 1936 for Pittsburgh department store magnate Edgar Kaufmann.
Cantilevered dramatically over a waterfall in Bear Run, near
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Fallingwater is notable for its relationship
with the environment—it appears to emerge from the rocks above the
waterfall—and for bringing the outdoors inside.
