The ar(t)chitecture of Frank Lloyd Wright

American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is justly famous - Simon and Garfunkel even wrote a beautiful song about him more than 10 years after he died. His legacy is hundreds of buildings still standing in the USA (more than a handful have been destroyed).  Here is my pick for five of his best works with links to the Wikipedia pages:

1. Fallingwater, Mill Run, USA, 1939 (image above).
2. Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, USA, 1959.
3. Gammage Memorial Auditorium, Tempe, USA, 1964.
4. Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Wauwatosa, USA, 1961.
5. Larkin Administration Building, Buffalo, USA, 1906 (demolished 1950).
