    What is architecture anyway? Is it the vast collection of the various buildings which have been built to please the varying tastes of the various lords of mankind? I think not. No, I know that architecture is life; or at least it is life itself taking form and therefore it is the truest record of life as it was lived in the world yesterday, as it is lived today or ever will be lived…So, architecture I know to be a Great Spirit. 

    — Frank Lloyd Wright

     Frank Lloyd Wright is without a doubt, one of the most influential architect.  He was not only an American architect, interior designer, and also an educator. He designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532 works. His organic architecture has a big impact on architects. He believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment. One of his famous building which reflect his philosophy is the Falling water.


    Falling water was built in 1935. It is in a rural area in Pennsylvania. It is one of the historical landmarks of America and one of the “29 places you must go before you die.” The combination of building and nature is perfectly in a balance. It is a masterpiece in architecture history.
