I enjoyed trips through y hometown of Detroit and admiring all of the well-designed buildings old and new. All of these buildings started with an idea and a great design. Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the greatest architects of the modern era, with his stunning designs placed across the globe; he is an example Of futuristic designs and an inspiration to today’s modern architects.
In this paper, I will examine the impact Wright has had on modern architecture and will attempt to answer the question; what will his impact be one-hundred years from Frank Lloyd Wright was born in Wisconsin on June 8, 1867 and lived a very pedestrian child life.After high school, he enrolled at University of Wisconsin- Madison where he decided to become an architect after working with Joseph Sessile on the construction of the Unity Chapel (Biography. Com). In 1887, Wright moved to Chicago and worked for the architectural firm ran by Louis Sullivan, who was a well-known designer of early office buildings (Settling, p. 309). Wright then opened his own firm in 1893 and over the next two decades, he refined the principles of his trademark “prairie houses” seen commonly throughout the Midwest (Settling, p. 309).
Wright is perhaps best known for his domestic architecture more than his argue-scale commercial and public buildings (Settling, p. 309). Locally, Wright designed a stunning beach house right here in Virginia Beach (http:// flirtatiousness’s. Com/). Many of the ultra-modern appearing buildings such as his 1936 designed Billingsgate home in Pennsylvania (Settling, p. 308) were decades ahead of their time. Wright expanded his work internationally when in 1 909; he abandoned his wife of twenty years, his children, and his practice and moved to Germany with is also-married mistress.
In Germany, he worked on two major portfolios that expanded his name. In 1913, he returned to the United States. In 1914, his home was set fire by an angered servant where his mistress and six others perished (Biography. Com). In 191 5, he further expanded on his international profile by embarking on a seven-year design project of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Japan. During the Great Kant earthquake Of 1 923, his expertly designed hotel was the only large building left standing in the entire city (Biography. Mom).
Wright returned to the United States soon after, marrying and divorcing his second wife, and then marrying his third. After the early 1 sass saw a decline in architectural omissions, Wright dedicated his life to teaching and writing; he also published an autobiography and wrote a book titled “The Disappearing City”, which both had become key works in architectural literature (Biography. Com). In 1 932, he established the Totalities Fellowship, an architectural school based out of his home.It did not take Wright long for the “itch” of design to return, as perhaps his most famous work, the Billingsgate house in Bear Run, Pennsylvania was designed and built. Wright designed private homes and public buildings at a prolific rate throughout the late 1 sass and early 1 sass until embarked on the design of the Guggenheim Museum of modern and contemporary art in New York City, a project that engulfed the last sixteen years of his life, along with designing nearly one-third of the 1,100 buildings in his lifetime.The Guggenheim Museum is regarded as one of the finest in New York City (Biography.
Com). Wright passed away in 1 959 at the age of 91 , six months before Guggenheim opened its doors. “Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack Of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall” (Wright). This quote from Wright summarizes his architectural mindset and style. He designed buildings of utmost innovation, as he felt that walking along the well-traveled path and staying with the norm would only lead to failure.Another quote from Wright: “A professional is one who does his best work when he feels the least like working’ (Wright), is of significance as Wright spent his later years performing the most and his most brilliant works of architecture.
Wright’s impact on modern residential architecture was truly ahead of its time. When you look at many of his domestic designs, such as Billingsgate, he Virginia Beach House, and the Toshiba Moor, you would have a hard time imagining that these homes were built many decades ago. His vision for the future of domestic design is almost Nostradamus-like.
