Happy 150th Birthday to Frank Lloyd Wright: How You Can Celebrate His Legacy






While June 8 marks the 150th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright?s birth, Stuart Graff, President and CEO of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation argues the great architect is even more relevant today. When it comes to the future, Wright was certainly ahead of his time?by a long shot. He was all over sustainable design before it was even in our vocabulary. He had a core belief that we should live more gently on the land. He conceived of open-concept living before HGTV home renovators were knocking down walls. He believed that our homes should be more open, fluid and livable.

?Frank Lloyd Wright?s vision put him so far ahead of his time that our technology is only now catching up to his ideas,? said Graff. ?We honor his life, not just by looking back on his greatness, but by following his lead and always looking forward to see how his legacy will continue to change how we live and how we build into the future.?
Graff took the helm of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation a little over a year ago. A self-defined ?recovering attorney? with a background in corporate leadership, Graff was decidedly not an architect but he had a passion for architecture sparked in his hometown of Chicago, perhaps the greatest architecturally pioneering city. After practicing both intellectual property and corporate law for many years, then leading businesses with Newell Rubbermaid and Valspar, Graff brings his corporate insight to the nonprofit Foundation.

I believe in God, only I spell it Nature. -Frank Lloyd Wright
Graff has an infectious passion for Wright?s work and sees his mission as encouraging reexamination of Wright?s work, not as a history lesson, but as someone who has much to tell us about the future. “Wright?s work influenced my career path, how I view the world and I want others to have that same passion,” said Graff. Graff and the Foundation are less interested in rote memorization of Wright?s principles and are instead focused on ways people can apply them in their own lives.
The best way to learn about Wright?s principles, Graff said, is to experience them firsthand.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE WRIGHT PHILOSOPHY OF LIVING

Visit a Frank Lloyd Wright building close to home. You’re likely quite familiar with the nuances of living in your environment. By paying a local Wright house a visit, you?ll see how he thought that buildings should work for you and in harmony with the local landscape. Look closely at the building materials, the building orientation, the elevation, and the floor plan.
Find a Wright building in a very different environment and compare. Through that comparison, you’ll get a visceral understanding of what Wright meant by “organic architecture.”

According to Graff, other than staying in a Wright home, this is the best way to really understand Wright’s ideals for living. For example,...
