Frank Llyod Wright - The Prairie Houses
GRIN Verlag, 2008 - 36 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Art - Architecture / History of Construction, grade: 74% entspricht 1,1, Coventry University, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the well-known architects of the 20th century. He was also an influential and known person during his lifetime and not only in the United States of America. His architecture influences even the architecture of today. Few of his innovations are e.g. the living room, a carport and an open floor plan (Wikipedia.org 2007). One of the most famous houses on earth, the Kaufmann House, better known as "The Fallingwater," was designed and built up by this brilliant architect. Frank Lloyd Wright developed a series of individual styles during his over seventy years of architectural career. He designed an astonishing count of buildings from chicken coops to museums, but houses are remaining his huge legacy. This is why I want to concentrate my work to his first individual style of house design: the Prairie Houses. But first of all, I want to give some introducing information about Frank Lloyd Wright.
