In Reply to: The influence of Japan on the works of Frank Lloyd Wright posted by Anthony Van Beneden on April 08, 2003 at 12:13:08:
Frank Lloyd Wright was heavily influenced by Japan, their culture & architecture. His was an organic architect & by the time he came back to this country he was even more of one after all he learned while in Japan. One of his greatest masterpieces was built in Japan known as the Imperial Hotel. It was so strongly built that it survived & remained nearly undamaged through one of Japans worst earthquakes. Sadly though it is now gone due to economic reasons. Much can be learned through Wright & organic principles. You cannot go wrong by studying Mr. Wright as he was & still is considered to be the USA's greatest architectural genuis. In my opinion, we still are not caught up to him. Check out his other masterpiece too called Fallingwater in Bear Run, PA. I once toured it & was totally in awe & capitivated by it's shear presence & how it is fully intergrated & incorporated into it's natural site. It represents organic architecture at its finest.
