THE FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FOUNDATION
Over a 70-year career, Frank Lloyd Wright created a modern American architecture that advanced the way we build and live around the world. More than a designer of buildings, he was an architect of ideas about innovative design, building in ways that make our lives better. Transforming architecture through sustainable, organic design, he is considered America’s greatest architect.
His work is more relevant today than ever before.
The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation invites the world to experience his two homes—Taliesin (Wisconsin) and Taliesin West (Arizona)—and to use Wright’s ideas to inspire everyone to live better and more beautifully.
Inspire the world through beautiful spaces that are thoughtfully designed and experienced
