Frank Lloyd Wright was born on June 8, 1867 in Richland Center of Wisconsin. He died on April 9, 1959 in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1887 he moved to Chicago and worked for Joseph Lyman Silsby and later in the office of Louis Sullivan, the famous American Architect, for a period of six years. His architectural career lasted 70 years. He designed 1,141 buildings, from which 532 were built. One third of his assignments were assigned to him during the last decade of his life. The internationally famous residence named Fallingwater House (1935), impressively hovers over a waterfall.
We think that anyone engaged in structural design should follow some principals based on his knowledge and experience.
We strongly recommend the following ...
The truth is more important than the facts.
A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.
No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. It should be of the hill, belonging to it. Hill and house should live together, each the happier for the other.
No stream rises higher than its source. What ever man might build could never express or reflect more than he was. He could record neither more nor less than he had learned of life when the buildings were built.
Organic architecture seeks superior sense of use and a finer sense of comfort, expressed in organic simplicity.
Organic buildings are the strength and lightness of the spiders' spinning, buildings qualified by light, bred by native character to everyone and married to the ground.
Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.
Respect the masterpiece. It is true reverence to man. There is no quality so great, none so much needed now.
Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
Space is the breath of art.
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
The heart is the chief feature of a functioning mind.
The mother art is architecture. Without architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
The physician can bury his mistakes, but the architect can only advise his client to plant vines - so they should go as far as possible from home to build their first buildings.
The room within is the great fact about the building.
The space within becomes the reality of the building.
There is nothing more uncommon than common sense.
Think simple' as my old master used to say - meaning reduce the whole of its parts into the simplest of terms, getting back to first principles.
All fine architectural vales are human values, else not valuable.
An architect's most useful tools are an eraser at the drafting board and a wrecking ball at the site.
Art for art's sake is a philosophy of the well-fed.
Freedom is from within.
Less is only more where more is no good.
Form follows function- that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.
An idea is salvation by imagination.
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
We try our best to follow them , because…
"An expert is a man who has stopped thinking-he knows!"
