Frank Lloyd Wright would have been 146 years old this week. In his lifetime Wright designed more than 1,000 structures, of which 532 were completed. Today it’s believed around 300 of his buildings still survive. Wright was recognised by the American Institute of Architects as “the greatest American Architect of all time” in 1991 and from their appearance it’s incredible to think that his earliest works are now nearly 125 years old. A few years ago I had the opportunity to visit and study the on-going conservation many of his buildings as part of a Winston Churchill Fellowship, and to meet many of the people caring from them today. In simple recognition of his birthday I thought I’d dig through my photo archive of my trip and share a few personal favourites that show the breadth of his surviving work. Enjoy…
