Organic architecture is an architectural philosophy that promotes harmony between human habitat and the natural world. Organic architecture is also reflected in the nature of the all-inclusive Frank Lloyd Wright design process. Materials, patterns, and basic control principles throughout the building. The idea of organic architecture refers not only to the literal relationship of buildings to the natural environment, but how the building planning is cautiously thought out as if it were a unitary organism. Geometries through the Wright buildings build a central mood and theme. Essentially organic architecture is also the literal design of every element of a building: the windows, floors, individual chairs intended to fill the space. Everything is related, reflecting the symbiotic systems of nature. Stamp with “Metso”, city library in Tampere, Finland, by Reima Pietilä. This is achieved by means of conceptual approaches, which want to be friendly and integrated with a website, so the building, facility and environment are part of a uniform, contiguous composition.

Other modern architects from the United States, Europe, and elsewhere have additional and often competing views on how architecture could imitate nature. Louis Sullivan, Claude Bragdon and Paul Laffoley among the great European modernists Hugo Häring and Hans Scharoun. After the Second World War, organic architecture often reflects cyber and computer models of life, as evidenced by the subsequent work of the futuristic architect Buckminster Fuller.
Organic architecture is a term used by Frank Lloyd Wright to describe his integrated environmental approach to architecture. The philosophy grew from Wright’s ideas of mentor, Louis Sullivan, who believed that “the form of the function follows.” Wright argues that “form and function are one.”
Organic architecture seeks to unite the space, mixing the interior and exterior, and create a separate, unbuilt environment or mastery of nature, but as a uniform whole. Frank Lloyd Wright was not concerned by architectural style because he believed that each building should naturally grow from its environment.
Modern organic design approaches:

In the latter half of the twentieth century, modernist architects took the concept of organic architecture to new heights. With new forms of concrete and farms booms, architects could create arches of bends, without beams or wooden beams.

Modern organic buildings are never linear or geometrically rigid.

In His Own Words:

From An Organic Architecture, 1939, by Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959):


“So here I stand before you preaching organic architecture: declaring organic architecture to be the modern ideal and the teaching so much needed if we are to see the whole of life, and to now serve the whole of life, holding no ‘traditions’ essential to the great TRADITION. Nor cherishing any preconceived form fixing upon us either past, present or future, but – instead – exalting the simple laws of common sense – or of super-sense if you prefer – determining form by way of the nature of materials…”
