Wright’s Organic Architecture
An overview of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design philosophy of organic architecture, tracing its evolution from the early days in Louis Sullivan’s Chicago office to the end of his prolific career with large public projects like New York’s Guggenheim Museum and Marin County’s Civic Center. Through his architecture, Wright demonstrated a method of composition paralleling that of nature, translating the processes of life, growth and development in abstract form to develop a unified totality in design. This lecture is part Justin Gunther’s series, Iconic Architect.
