What is Organic Architecture?
John Spacey, updated on
Organic architecture is a design approach that unifies buildings, structures and interiors with their natural surroundings. The idea is that people are part of nature and tend to thrive when they live and work in natural settings.The term organic architecture was coined by Frank Lloyd Wright. Although considered modern, it differs greatly from the main thrust of modern architecture that stresses ideas such as form follows function. The form of organic architecture follows nature and isn't as functional as the rectangular, undecorated buildings that typify modern architecture. Organic architecture is planned much like a garden whereby buildings are simply one element of a green space.
