Wrightscapes: Frank Lloyd Wright's Landscape Designs
Frank Lloyd Wright, an American architect, pioneered the organic style of architecture. His most famous buildings - Fallingwater and Guggenheim Museum - have inspired generations of architects and an entire school dedicated to teaching his principles. Less well-known are the contributions Wright brought to landscape and site design. His designs holistically integrated inside and outside, and he was a precursor in the field of sustainable, environmentally sensitive use of plant materials, climate, and natural lighting. This work examines Wright's residential and public work and his urban design initiatives.
