Considered the most influential architect of his time, Frank Lloyd Wright designed about 1,000 structures, some 400 of which were built. He described his "organic architecture" as one that "proceeds, persists, creates, according to the nature of man and his circumstances as they both change." As a pioneer whose ideas were well ahead of his time, Wright had to fight for acceptance of almost every new design.
Oak Park near Chicago, Illinois is home to the largest collection of Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings and houses built between 1889 and 1913. These designs changed the course of 20th century architecture.
