Children's LiteratureThis biography tells Frank Lloyd Wright's life, inspirations, and accomplishments. It describes how he grew up in the countryside of Wisconsin that later became his artistic inspiration as he began painting and, later in life, designing architectural buildings. Having achieved wealth and popularity through designing residential buildings by the age of forty, he grew restless and left both his wife and children and the country to tour and design in Europe with the wife of a client. Upon returning he found the scandal too great to continue as in the past and eventually created a retreat, Taliesin, that later became a school of design. Frank Wright again achieved success, though this time through commercial design. Also, he achieved world-wide fame by designing a hotel in Japan, creating a fellowship program at Taliesin, and designing the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. His devotion to work and self-centeredness led to many short-lived relationships and marriages. Finally he ended up marrying Olgivanna and having two children with her (one of which was adopted). Never tiring, Frank Lloyd Wright worked up until his death at age ninety-one, completing more than 700 buildings. 2006, Creative Education, Ages 12 to 16.
