Wright Angles

aDSC00221

Frank Lloyd Wright was a romantic with an emotional reaction to architecture and the environment, explaining that “when organic architecture is properly carried out no landscape is ever outraged by it but is always developed by it”.  His desire to blend in with and ameliorate the environment, can be seen in his use of colour, and in his use of angles.  Not all of his walls are perpendicular, nor his doors and windows rectangular, rather the angles tend to mimic the surrounding area.

Below are some examples from Taliesin West.
