In 1991, the American Institute of Architects called him, quite simply,“the greatest American architect of all time.” Frank Lloyd Wright, born today, June 8th, 1867, would have turned 145 years old today. Despite the years, Wright’s relevance hasn’t diminished.

Perhaps best known for his Fallingwater House and New York’s iconic Guggenheim Museum (see our original doodle below), Wright was a prolific architect, interior designer, and writer who spent his life advocating an “organic” architecture at harmony with its surroundings. On the occasion of Wright’s birth, we invite you to look back on his truly impressive oeuvre. And what better place to start, than his classics: AD Classics: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum  AD Classics: Frederick C. Robie House  AD Classics: Fallingwater House  Frank Lloyd Wright at the Guggenheim: From Within Outward LEGO Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright Collection
