Frank Lloyd Wright was a modern architect who developed an organic and distinctly American style. He designed numerous iconic buildings.

Synopsis

Frank Lloyd Wright was born on June 8, 1867, in Richland Center, Wisconsin. After college, he became chief assistant to architect Louis Sullivan. Wright then founded his own firm and developed a style known as the Prairie school, which strove for an "organic architecture" in designs for homes and commercial buildings. Over his career he created numerous iconic buildings. He died April 9, 1959.

About the author

Herbert A. Jacobs (April 8, 1903 - May 20, 1987) was a journalist for the Milwaukee Journal and later a professor of journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.

Jacobs was a friend of Frank Lloyd Wright. Jacobs and his wife Katherine commissioned Wright to design a house for them. This house, the Herbert and Katherine Jacobs First House, was notable as the first example of Usonian architecture.

Later, they commissioned Wright to design another house for them, the Herbert and Katherine Jacobs Second House.
