Frank Lloyd Wright: born June 8, 1867

Born this day 143 years ago, Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator. He completed more than 500 works, including his famous Fallingwater House and Guggenheim Musem, and was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture.

In 1991, he was recognized by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American architect of all time”. As we did last week with Sir Norman Foster, we want to honor Lloyd Wright’s birthday by bringing you every project and article we’ve featured with this amazing architect’s work:
