and the architecture
Frank designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 532.

Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.

He showed his rebellion against classic architecture , in his early years as an architect .

Frank became the godfather of modern architecture and the owner of the organic architectural theory.

Architecture itself took a whole new direction on his hands relaying on new materials gathering its elements and vocabulary to give an integrated vacuum unit and an architectural fabric in art .
It's the house designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright for Edgar Kaufmann in southwestern Pennsylvania, hangs over a waterfall using the architectural device known as the cantilever.
The concept
Wright described his architectural style as "organic"--in harmony with nature, and though Falling-water reveals vocabulary drawn from the International style in certain aspects, this country house exhibits so many features typical of Wright's natural style, the house very much engaged with its surroundings.
