  9. 9. GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM, new york , united states. • Established in 1937 • Type Art museum • Frank Lloyd Wright created the Guggenheim Museum as a series of organic shapes. • Circular forms spiral down like the interior of a shell. • Visitors to the museum begin on the upper level and follow a sloping ramp downward through connected exhibition spaces.
  10. 10. Concept : • The building itself became a work of art. • At the core, an open rotunda offers views of artwork on several levels. • From the street, the building looks like a white ribbon rolled into a cylindrical shape, slightly wider at the top than at the bottom. • Internally, the galleries form a spiral.
  11. 11. Its design was inspired by a "Ziggurat" Babylonian temple pyramid, inverted.
  12. 12. ROBIE HOUSE ,CHICAGO • The Robie House of 1910 is generally considered to be Wright’s “best”Prairie style work. • This style is characterized by a dominating horizontal axis, bandedwindows, and a spacious and open interior plan. • The exterior is dominated by a lowhipped roof, simple building materials (mainly brick, wood, and stucco)

  14. 14. concept : • The house was designed for Frederick C. Robie, a bicycle manufacturer, who did not want a home done in the typical Victorian style. • Robie desired a modern floorplan and needed a garage, and a playroom for children. • He also required that his home be fire-proof, yet retained an open floor plan free of closed, box-like rooms that would prevent the uniformity of decoration and design.

Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization. • Form follows function - that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union. • Nature is my manifestation of God. I go to nature every day for inspiration in the day's work. I follow in building the principles which nature has used in its domain.
