Frank Lloyd Wright was the world?s most fabulous architect of all time. This was his ambition in life and he managed to meet his goals.

Yes, I intend to be the greatest architect of all time” (Writings 21). With much research Kaufmann discovered that throughout Wright?s life he completed one hundred and eighty eight structures (338). All of his buildings were not simply concrete and/or wood but art.
