An organic approach to design was also fundamental to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wright worked for Adler and Sullivan for five years, and during that time closely with Sullivan. While Sullivan’s work included organic detail Wright took the approach further. Some of his work leaned on organic form while other projects express a kind of organic likeness to the surroundings. We see this in his Prairie School designs. However his most famous project to accomplish an almost complete organic synthesis is a residence he designed for the Kaufmann family called Fallingwater.
Frank Lloyd Wright worked for Louis Sullivan who worked for Frank Furness. Furness was a prolific architect whose buildings were idiosyncratic, to say the least. He was talented and unusual and his buildings took the Victorian style, popular at the time, in a fanciful new direction. He was also clearly impressed and influenced by Gothic Revival work of the earlier century. Furness manipulates form and scale to the point that it distorts the architecture. His buildings reflect his inventive, aesthetic flair.
Frank Furness was an american architect who pushed the boundaries of style. Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, on the other hand, created his own. Like Furness, Gaudi’s work was idiosyncratic. Particularly his church Sagrada Familia, begun in 1882 and still under construction. The natural world influenced the forms of this church and other churches inspired its layout. The idea was to use traditional organization and elements as a framework for the fantastic.
For those who wonder what organic means in architecture: its a building designed as one complete whole.
If you take out a part of the building and you feel something is off, that building was organicly designed
If you design a building, and add stuff on it later, thats not organic.
I will try to come up with a simpler way to put it
