Frank Lloyd Wright


(born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 April 9, 1959)

Was an American architect, interior


designer, writer, and educator, who
designed more than 1,000 structures,
532 of which were completed.
Wright believed in designing structures
that were in harmony with humanity
and its environment, a philosophy he
called organic architecture. This
philosophy was best exemplified by
Fallingwater (1935), which has been
called "the best all-time work of
American architecture".

Wright was a
leader of the Prairie School movement of
architecture and developed the concept of the
Usonian home1, his unique vision for urban
planning in the United States

The "Usonian Homes" were typically small, single-story dwellings


without a garage or much storage. They were often L-shaped to fit
around a garden terrace on unusual and inexpensive sites.

Le Corbusier
(October 6, 1887 August 27, 1965)

Was a Swiss-French
architect, designer, painter,
urban planner, writer, and
one of the pioneers of what
is now called modern
architecture. He was born
in Switzerland and became a
French citizen in 1930. His
career spanned five decades,
with his buildings
constructed throughout
Europe, India, and the
Americas.

Dedicated to providing better living


conditions for the residents of
crowded cities, Le Corbusier was
influential in urban planning, and was
a founding member of the Congrs
international d'architecture modern
(CIAM). Corbusier prepared the
master plan for the planned city of
Chandigarh in India, and contributed
specific designs for several buildings
there.

Mies Van Der Rohe


(born Maria Ludwig Michael Mies; March 27, 1886 August 17, 1969)

Was a

German-American architect. He is commonly


referred to and was addressed as Mies, his surname.

Mies,

like many of his post-World War I contemporaries,


sought to establish a new architectural style that
could represent modern times just as Classical and
Gothic did for their own eras. He created an
influential twentieth-century architectural style,
stated with extreme clarity and simplicity. His mature
buildings made use of modern materials such as industrial
steel and plate glass to define interior spaces.

He strove toward an architecture with a


framework of structural order balanced
the implied freedom of free-flowing
space. He called his buildings "skin and
architecture. He sought a rational
approach that would guide the creative
process of architectural design, but he
always concerned with expressing the
modern era.
