Frank Lloyd Wright

This site offers an overview of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prolific 70-year career. It also provides a “webliography” of Wright’s work. In other words, the site offers a list of internet resources that might contribute to the study, appreciation, or sheer enjoyment of works by the man who has been called America’s most creative and innovative architect.

Further, we have included a page featuring the seventeen buildings that have been designated by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) for preservation as examples of Wright’s architectural contribution to American culture. We hope that Wright on the Web inspires the visitor to seek out his nearest building — or make a pilgrimage to a distant one — and experience “for real” an actual structure or interior space that Wright created.

Links to photographs and other materials are arranged chronologically wherever possible. In addition, a page provides links to sites that deal with Frank Lloyd Wright’s career, in general — photo collections, directories of resources, biographical sketches, etc. Finally, if a link to a good photograph or a useful site has been overlooked, my apologies. To add a link from Wright on the Web, please e-mail the URL to the address at the bottom of this page.
