Masters of 20th century architecture: Frank Lloyd Wright

Luis Fernández-Galiano

This cycle on the four masters of 20th century architecture opens with the one considered one of the first modern architects and "builder of American identity” Frank Lloyd Wright (1876-1959). His life and artistic career is reviewed in this lecture by the also architect Luis Fernández-Galiano. Frank Lloyd Wright left us as a legacy his architectural forms, especially through his houses, with which he sought to break the conventional boxed volumes and open them to the landscape. His prolific career, essential to the understanding of the birth of the international European style, left icons of modern architecture such as the Fallingwater and the iconic Guggenheim Museum building in New York.​​​​​​
