Arguably America's best-known architect, Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is famed for his sleek, rational designs of houses and buildings nestled in natural surroundings. Across the United States, Wright's works embody the precept of Organic Architecture, that a project must be constructed in response to the site's landscape, with respect for the client's needs, and with awareness of local materials. Throughout her career, painter Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) created breathtaking works of intimacy, simplicity, and precision, inspired by observations both of the urban environment of New York City and the stark landscapes of the American Southwest. Both Wright and O'Keeffe applied a respect and understanding of nature to their work. Studied together, these creators' works bring new insight into how the organic influences the artistic.
