Frank Lloyd Wright unknowingly tapped into sustainable principals a century before ecology could even define what sustainability meant. 

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867 and his vision of architecture was shaped by his rural Wisconsin upbringing and his ego. Louis Sullivan taught him to think for himself and abandon recreations of European styles. His response was to create a unique American architecture with its own grammar and style. Almost unknowingly he learned to use steel, glass, regional materials, integrated lighting and beauty to define his "Organic Architecture." One notable technique was to place the structure on the side of a hill versus on top of the hill. The peak of the "Prairie Style" was the Wasmuth portfolio, published in Germany in 1911. Mr. Wright then published his autobiography in 1932 and that led to the next phase of his career.

I'm reposting this blog because it is the most popular on the site. I've updated a few things. Still producing the local U.S. Green Building Council home tours and trying to understand how to motivate the public. My work with the Greater Cincinnati Earth Coalition is trying to partner with other groups in the region to migrate to an "Earth Education Weekend." I'm always available to answer any questions you have and to help your project come to life, 513-260-9025, chuck@lohre.com.
