Frank Lloyd Wright Houses – Taliesin, Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob
by Frances Folsom, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“America’s other great artists – our best painters, sculptors, composers – don’t really rank with the tops of all time. They’re just not Rembrandt, or Michelangelo or Beethoven. Frank Lloyd Wright alone had that kind of standing. By common consent of those qualified to judge, he’s among the greatest architects who ever practiced.” Robert Campbell, Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic

To say that Frank Lloyd Wright pushed the outside of the envelope when it came to architecture is putting it mildly. The man was a genius far ahead of his time with his designs. He believed in integrating nature and architecture. During his long career Wright designed over 1,100 houses, office buildings, schools, churches, synagogues and museums.
