Eric Lloyd Wright is an architect and founder of Wright Way Organic Resource Center in Malibu, CA. During Eric’s early years in architecture, he was an apprentice to his grandfather, Frank Lloyd Wright and his father, Lloyd Wright. His portfolio includes the restoration and renovation of Frank Lloyd Wright and Lloyd Wright works as well as residences and institutional buildings of his own design.
Eric’s current focus is on the evolution of Organic Architecture and Green Building design. His design philosophy is rooted in the integration of ecology, social responsibility and beauty. Through Eric’s years of design experience, he has developed an understanding that it is not the physical walls and roof, but the space within a building that forms its character. He gives careful thought to a project’s physical, social and spiritual environment, with a focus on appropriate materials, quality, craftsmanship, and careful detailing.
His talks in Cyprus – entitled “Working with Nature” – focused on the three Wrights generations and how they developed organic architecture.
The events involving Eric in Cyprus were coordinated by Yiannis Colakides & Helene Black.
