A distinctively American architecture began with Frank Lloyd Wright, who had taken to heart the
admonition that from should follow function and who thought of buildings not as separatearchitectural
entities but as parts of an organic whole that included the land, the community, and the society. In a very
Line real way the houses of colonial New England nand some of the southern plantations had been functional,
(5) but Wright was the first architec to make functionalism the authoritative principle for public as well as
for domestic building. As early as 1906 he built the Unity Temple in Oak Park, Illionis, the first of those
churches that did so much to revolutionizxe ecclesiastical architecture in the United States. Thereafter
he turned his genius to such miscellaneous structures as houses, school, office building, and factories,
among them the famous Larkin Building in Buffalo, New York, and the Johnson Wax Company building
(10) in Racine, Wisconsin.
