About Frank Lloyd Wright
The most influential American Architect of the 1930s, as during the opening decades of the century, was the ever-inventive Frank Lloyd Wright. In keeping with his commitment to an “architecture of democracy,” Wright sought to find a way to incorporate the structure fully into its site in order to ensure a fluid, dynamic exchange between the interior of the structure and the natural environment outside. The implied message of Wright’s new architecture was space, not mass. In the late 1930s, he acted on a cherished dream to provide good architectural designs for the less prosperous people by adapting the ideas of his prairie houses to plans for smaller, less expensive dwellings with neither attics nor basements. These residences, known as Usonian houses became templates for suburban housing developments in the post-World War II housing boom. Frank Lloyd Wright’s influence in the United States and Europe was exceptional, however, for any American artist before World War II in the decades following that global conflict, American painters, sculptors, and architects often took the lead in establishing new styles artists elsewhere quickly emulated.
