10 Facts About Frank Lloyd Wright the Most Famous American Architect [Infographic]

Though most influential architects are arguably not as well-known as the world's most famous artists, there are some “star architects” that become household names. One famous architect who has reached this level of fame is Frank Lloyd Wright. From the iconic Fallingwater to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Wright designed some of the most important buildings in all of American architectural history. In fact, his design language is so well-known that patterns from his work can be found in design items from FLW drinking glasses to puzzles.

If you are already a fan of this iconic architect, you might recognize him for these famous projects or for his invention of the first-ever American style of architecture—the Prairie Style. But there is plenty more to know about FLW. For example, did you know that Wright experimented with different styles on each house he designed? Or that his son John Lloyd Wright invented the popular children’s toy Lincoln Logs?
