Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright was a architectural visionary. he designed building to fit with there surrounding not stick out. he was the first to utilize low angled roofs and buildings with no basements he called these prairie style architect. he was able to be successful with out ever finishing high school or a degree from a university everything he learned was from a guy named Louis Sullivan. Sullivan planted to the seed to make Frank the amazing architect that he was. Frank too Sullivan's falsity and ran with it never looking back and changing it slowly along the way. one quote of his that stood out to me was "No house should ever be on a hill or on anything. it should be of the hill, belonging to it. hill and house should live together,each the happier for the other."
