Frank Lloyd Wright

One of the 20th centuries foremost influential architects and designers, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 – 1959) created designs in a response to his love of nature and his need to integrate his work as closely as possible with the natural world. The key factors in Wright’s work are space, light and colour. Space the first consideration. The Winslow House of 1893 bears his unmistakable stamp, its horizontal emphasis opening inwards as well as outwards. Most of his buildings were built of brick, most of which was red. It was used on the exterior and interior; it featured as piers, fireplaces and frequently as entry hall floors. He used colour in an integrated way that brought unity and harmony to the design. One of the most important characteristics, his sensitivity to colour and texture extended to encompass his furnishings and landscaping.
