La #casasullacascata del 1936 è l'esempio più pragmatico ed eccezionale del modo wrighteriano di fare ee intendere l'architettura che lui stesso chiamò organica: «Per Architettura Organica io intendo un'architettura che si sviluppi dall'interno all'esterno, in armonia con le condizioni del suo essere, distinta da un'architettura che venga applicata dall'esterno.» Nel suo volume Architettura organica del 1939 Frank Lloyd Wright espresse compiutamente la sua idea di architettura, che aveva come idea trainante il rifiuto della mera ricerca estetica o il semplice gusto superficiale, così come una società organica dovrebbe essere indipendente da ogni imposizione esterna contrastante con la natura dell'uomo. La progettazione architettonica dovrebbe creare un'armonia tra l'uomo e la natura, costruire un nuovo sistema in equilibrio tra ambiente costruito e ambiente naturale attraverso l'integrazione dei vari elementi artificiali propri dell'uomo (costruzioni, arredi, ecc.) e naturali dell'intorno ambientale del sito. • • • Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater, o Casa Kaufmann o Casa sulla cascata, 1936 ~ 1939 Mill Run ~ Pennsylvania __ #franklloydwright #fallingwater #casakaufmann #architetturaorganica #architetturamoderna #architectures #historyofart #historyofarchitecture #architecturalphotography #architectureoftheday #architectureofinstagram #architecturelovers #architectureinterieure #artlovers

Located in the mountains of Southwestern Pennsylvania, Fallingwater is open to public as a museum now. Being one of many famous buildings of  Frank Lloyd Wright, Fallingwater has witnessed more than five million visitors. Since its closed, you can a take a virtual tour now.

Samara House

Built and completed in 1956,  Samara House is nestled in one of Indiana’s most historically significant cities. Today, Samara features more than 40 of Wright’s architectural innovations. This educational artwork also hosts thousands of visitors annually.

Westcott House

The Westcott House resembles Japanese architecture since Wright has just paid a visit to Japan. The low-lying, horizontally spread out house has the connection to the landscape. The large windows allow sufficient natural light to enter the rooms and give a glow to the interiors.  Experience the timeless designs in one of the world-class buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright here.

Hollyhock House

Influenced by the style of seventh-century Mayan temples, Hollyhock House is located in the East Hollywood neighbourhood of Los Angeles, was completed between 1919 and 1921. Each of the rooms inside the house also leads out to the external spaces, that include porches, pergolas and a narrow pool. The upper floor takes you to the rooftop terraces, that offer magnificent views to the Hollywood Hills.

Unity Temple

Built between 1905 and 1908, Unity Temple is considered to be one of Wright’s most important structures. You can see that plaster, brick, or stone cover this massive structure. Wright did this deliberately to harmonize with his philosophy of organic architecture.
