Why Pennsylvania is famous. Frank Llloyd Wright.

Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 thru April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects, which resulted in more than 500 completed works. Wright promoted organic architecture exemplified by Fallingwater, was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture (exemplified by the Robie House, the Westcott House, and the Darwin D. Martin House, and developed the concept of the Usonian home exemplified by the Rosenbaum House. His work includes original and innovative examples of many different building types, including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. Wright also often designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and glass. Wright authored 20 books and many articles, and was a popular lecturer in the United States and in Europe. His colorful personal life often made headlines, most notably for the 1914 fire and murders at his studio. Already well-known during his lifetime, Wright was recognized in 1991 by the American Institute of Architects as the greatest American architect of all time. Located 7 miles from Falling Water is another one of Frank Lloyd Wright home designs, called Kentucky Knob.
