Frank Lloyd Wright
Born in 1867 in Wisconsin, Frank Lloyd Wright is one of America's most famous and appreciated architects of all time. In 1887, he moved to Chicago and joined the prestigious architecture firm of Adler and Sullivan until 1893. His first independent commission was the William H. Winslow House, completed in 1894. Wright is known for his belief in creating "organic architecture", the Prairie style, and the Usonian House. Some of his most famous works include Fallingwater, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the Robie House, and Unity Temple. He passed away in 1959 at the age of 91.
