Frank Lloyd Wright honored the natural world to a point of religious conviction; creating a legacy for generations of architects to come who designed spaces that first and foremost assimilated, and paid homage to, their natural habitat. Two generations later, Frank Lloyd Wrights grandson, architect Eric Lloyd Wright continues the romance between nature and man made space, with his own California based firm Eric Lloyd Wright Architecture & Planning and his embrace of Organic Architecture.
The company works with the natural environment using non-toxic materials while embracing alternative construction and energy systems. In addition the firm focuses on working with local communities using materials and technologies that focus on lessening the environmental impact of construction and use. The goal, with each project, is to create spaces that "nourish the soul and lift the spirit while also promoting social and environmental responsibility."
Eric Lloyd Wright will exhibit some of his conceptualizations of living green spaces at the Green West event on May 20-22, 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and the Green East Event scheduled for October 21-23, 2008 at the Jacob K. Javitz center in New York. Each event will display sustainable spaces that are distinctly unique, reflecting the local environment, materials and community culture, the core principles of sustainable organic architecture (the focus of his business, and the core of his philosophy).
The architect will collaborate on the project with his chief associates including Hannah Wear and Kevin Parkhurst, who are also principle partners in Design Integration Group - an in house ecological design consulting firm.
