Frank Lloyd Wright
History of the Architect
Afterwards, he worked in Chicago for architect Joseph Lyman Silsbee and drafted his first building, The Unity Chapel (pictured below).
1 year later, Wright worked in the Adler and Sullivan firm- directly under Sullivan. He adapted Sullivan's maxim "Form follows function" to his own "Form and Function are One."
Eventually, Wright developed his own firm in Chicago and later in life, designed his own architecture school, Taliesin (pictured below).
