Local Note :Wright was a well-known American architect, interior designer, writer and educator. He believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture, best exemplified, many say, by his design for Fallingwater (1935). He was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States.
