Frank Lloyd Wright’s core belief, and that which inspired his designs, was that man and nature were one and should never be separated. He strove to create the perfect balance, knowing that man couldn’t survive without shelter, but could not thrive to his maximum without nature.

Today, his designs are just as appropriate as the day he first put pen to paper.
