Fallingwater, 1935 by Frank Lloyd Wright #organicdesign #organicarchitecture #movement
Organic Design is a philosophy of architecture which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world through the design approaches of buildings, furnishings, and products; which are sympathetic to their surroundings.
Forms from nature influence products.
The term "Organic Architecture" was coined by Frank Lloyd Wright: "So here I stand before you preaching organic architecture: declaring organic architecture to be the modern ideal and the teaching so much needed if we are to see the whole of life, and to now serve the whole of life, holding no ‘traditions’ essential to the great TRADITION. Nor cherishing any preconceived form fixing upon us either past, present or future, but – instead – exalting the simple laws of common sense – or of super-sense if you prefer – determining form by way of the nature of materials…”
Following Wright, the organic design movement became concerned about ecological issues. Modern organic designers consider factors such as energy conservation, renewable resources, recycling, natural materials and local economies #american #architect #famous #modern #fallingwater #building #archidaily #modernism #moderndesign #history #timeline #nature #organic #icon #inspiration #closertonature
