A Virtual Look at the Works of Frank Lloyd Wright


“Every great artist is — necessarily — a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.” — FLW

Frank Lloyd Wright

This site offers an overview of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prolific 70-year career and a “webliography” — i.e., a gathering of internet resources that might contribute to the study, appreciation, or sheer enjoyment of works created by the man who has been called America’s most creative and innovative architect. Also included is a page that features seventeen buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright that have been designated by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to be retained as an example of his architectural contribution to American culture. It is hoped that Wright on the Web will inspire 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 Frank Lloyd Wright created.

Links to photographs and other materials are arranged chronologically wherever possible. Following the chronological periods, a page provides links to sites that deal with Frank Lloyd Wright’s career, in general — photo collections, directories of resources, biographical sketches, etc. 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.
