Abstract: The core of Wright’s architectural thought is organic architecture.In general,organic architecture is not only a logical development of prairie-style house, out also absorbs rational core of the "Form Follows Function".From the theoretical level speaking,Organic Architecture,were at the edge of architectural theory and derived from folk wisdom.Therefore after Wright died, organic architecture did not go up to or absorbed into the architectural mainstream.If the architect’s influence is as a judge,Wright’s reputation is not commensurate with his contribution.Mies and Corbusier evolved to adapt to industrial society,while Wright avoided the industrial revolution and returned to the agricultural tradition,have weakened the influence of Wright’s architectural thought. The above weakened the influence of Wright’s architectural thought.
