Organic buildings are never linear or rigidly geometric. Instead, wavy lines and curved shapes suggest natural forms.
Examples of Organic Modernism:
- Frank Lloyd Wright used shell-like spiral forms when he designed the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City
- Artist and architectural designer used ocean motifs when he designed Sea Ranch Chapel in Gualala, California
- Architect Eero Saarinen is known for designing grand bird-like buildings such as the TWA terminal at New York's Kennedy Airport and Dulles Airport near Washington D.C.
- Architect Jorn Utzon borrowed shell-like forms for the Sydney Opera House in Australia.
