Weekly Architecture Fix, Vol. 8 | Organic Architecture

We’re still here for you, even while social distancing

Hi, everyone.

Frank Lloyd Wright coined the term organic architecture. On the heels of last week’s feature on the eminent architect, this week’s feature is dedicated to Organic Architecture. The Dictionary of Architecture and Construction defines the style as: a philosophy of architectural design, emerging in the early 20th century, asserting that in structure and appearance a building should be based on organic forms and should harmonize with its natural environment. We explore this further here.

Warm regards,
DAF Team

“Organic buildings are the strength and lightness of the spiders’ spinning, buildings qualified by light, bred by native character to environment, married to the ground.” – Frank Lloyd Wright
