    Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs were known for incorporating the natural rock formations and geology on which they were built.  In the 1939 series of lectures dubbed “An Organic Architecture”, he was quoted as saying that designers ought to be “determining form by way of the nature of materials”.  In 1946, the First Unitarian Society of Madison Wisconsin hired him to design an environmentally friendly meeting house that is now considered a National Historic Landmark.  As an example of his enduring influence today, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, Taliesin, recently produced a prototype for an energy-efficient house called Mod.Fab (see link below).  The house is designed to recycle gray water and harvest rain to minimize water consumption.  The house, intended specifically for the desert, is equipped with solar panels.
