Wooden Desks – Historical Origin and Design Inspiration
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT (1867-1959) Wright was born in Richland Centern WI. In 1887 Wright went to Chicago, where he became a designer for the firm of Adler and Sullivan. In 1893 he established his own office in Chicago. Wright created the philosophy of “organic architecture,” which maintains that a building should develop out of its natural surroundings. His designs for both private and public structures were boldly original, and he rebelled against classic architecture and it traditional ornamentation.
Wright initiated many new techniques such as the use of precast concrete blocks reinforced by steel rods. He introduced numerous residential innovations, including air conditioning, indirect lighting, and panel heating. Besides project work, Wright spent much of his time writing, lecturing, and teaching. He was a frequent guest on television in the 1950’s.
Wright died in 1959 and unleashed a huge debate, still going on, about what constitutes a Wright house. Is it a house he personally designed and saw through to construction? Is it a house he designed but was built by Taliesin staff after his death? Is it a house he designed but was built later by others? And what about modifications – just how many and to what extent do design changes make a Wright-designed house simply Wright-inspired? With literally hundreds of unbuilt Wright houses available through Taliesin, that debate will certainly continue.
Wright has been studied more than any other architect. With countless books, films, and dissertations, his life is well-documented. We will not attempt more here except to document his amazing houses. He was one of the greatest figures in 20th-century architecture, and because of his immense popularity he continues to be one of the only architects the average person can name.
