DESCRIPTION

“Ask the average citizen to name a famous American architect and you can bet that their answer will be Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright gained such cultural primacy for good reason; he changed the way we build and live. Designing 1,114 architectural works of all types—532 of which were realized—he created some of the most monumental and most intimate spaces in the United States. With a career that spanned seven decades before his death in 1959, Wright’s visionary work cemented his place as the American Institute of Architects’ 'greatest American architect of all time.'”  franklloydwright.org

 

RECOGNITION

Wright has received much honorary recognition for his lifetime achievements.  He received Gold Medal awards from The Royal Institute of British Architects (1941) and the American Institute of Architects (1949).  He was awarded the Franklin Institute's Frank P. Brown Medal (1953) and he was honored by the United States Postal Service with a Prominent Americans postage stamp (1966).  In 2000, Fallingwater was named "The Building of the 20th century” at the AIA national convention.
