Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Considered as one of the greatest American architects, Frank Lloyd Wright is strongly identified by its intertwined configuration of masses in an almost baroque expressionist style.

This paper approaches Frank Lloyd Wright architectural production in a conceptual level, examining his key design paradigms and reviewing its relation towards Wright social development theories and understanding.
