Frank Lloyd Wright is regarded as one of the most important and creative architects in the history of the United States. From the time he joined the Chicago firm of Louis H. Sullivan in 1887, until the bold large work of the Guggenheim Museum in the 1950s, he created a variety of architectural forms. During a career that lasted about 72 years, Wright produced over 800 designs.
 
Frank Lloyd Wright’s first innovative designs were prairie style homes. The most famous of these was Frederick C. Robie’s home, built in Chicago between 1907 and 1909. The prairie style had a low horizontal form, which seemed to grow out of the ground, and was designed to harmonize with the landscape. Wright’s use of wood and other natural materials adds to this effect. The spaces inside the home extend through porches and terraces to the outside. These are characteristic ways in which he worked to match a building’s form with its function and to adjust each building to its natural site.
 
Frank Lloyd Wright designed a number of other prairie houses and applied the style to other buildings. The prairie house was also imitated by others, mostly in the Midwest. Wright’s great influence on architecture, which had its beginnings with the prairie style of Robie House, spread across America and around the world.
