Few figures are as ever-present in American architecture as Frank Lloyd Wright, a visionary whose work continues to serve as an inspiration, the bedrock upon which much of modernist architecture is built. From revolutionary Prairie-style dwellings to singular organic designs and accessible Usonian models, Wright’s work rethought architectural tenets—and made Wright a celebrity in his lifetime.
Wright was also incredibly prolific, designing hundreds of buildings that run the gamut from individual homes to museums to, in at least one case, a doghouse. While this list is by no means comprehensive—and the numbers here do not designate any kind of ranking—we pulled together this guide to present a picture of the architect’s wide-ranging motifs. From masterpieces to singular, and often unorthodox, ideas, this is your essential primer to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright.
