‘Organic’ is usually associated with the living world but for Frank Lloyd Wright it meant interpreting nature’s principles to be manifested in buildings which were in harmony with the world around them. Architect and planner David Pearson produced the Gaia charter which was a list of rules to encourage organic architecture and design. This organic approach has an illustrious history: from Celtic design, Art Nouveau, Arts and Crafts to the work of Antoni Gaudi and Frank Lloyd Wright. Today there is a response to a new age of information and ecology; architects are seeking to change the relationship between buildings and the natural environment. This day school aims to provide an insight into the history and assessment of organic architecture.
