Frank Lloyd Wright

An American architect, who is regarded as one of the greatest figures of 20th-century, was born on 8th June 1867, in Wisconsin. He studied engineering at the Wisconsin University. He worked as an assistant at the Chicago architectural firm. During the 1890s, he experimented in various styles and proved his mastery of the architectural ideas of the time. Wright guided by organic architecture. To achieve this organic design, he used geometric units or modules; that generated a grid. His first modules were squares. Later he used hexagons, diamonds, and other geometric shapes. He died on April 9, 1959, Phoenix, Arizona, United States.
