Frank Lloyd Wright perfected a distinctly American style of architecture that emphasized simplicity and natural beauty in contrast to the elaborate and ornate architecture that had prevailed in Europe.
Unlike the cluttered rooms of the Victorian era, Wright's homes had open spaces and an orderly arrangement of furnishings. Built-in furnishings and a repetition of geometric forms gave Frank Lloyd Wright's rooms a sense of simplicity and order.
Frank Lloyd Wright designed the living area for the Thaxter Shaw House, Montreal, Canada in 1906.
Eventually, Wright founded his own firm and developed a style known as the Prairie school, which strove for an "organic architecture" in designs for homes and commercial buildings. Over his career he created numerous iconic buildings. [* ]
