Frank Lloyd Wright, World Architect
Frank Lloyd Wright was world famous by the 1940s. The Museum of Modern Art in New York City devoted an exhibition to his work in 1940. Wright designed a museum called the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. It was built to house a collection of abstract art. Construction began in 1956 and the building opened in 1959, shortly after Wright died. Not everyone liked the design. Do you know why?
