Containing signature devices and acting as an illustration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ideals and design principles, the Meyer May House is an uncomplicated example of Wright’s concept of “organic architecture”. Although his architectural works vary they all have originated out of this same specific fundamental philosophy. Working within the notion that architecture must be “natural to the time and place for which it is designed, [and] natural to the man for whom it is built” (An American Architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright, ©1955); Wright designed the Meyer May House as a cohesive juxtaposition of planes and space against natural light.The house was consciously placed on the site to allow for maximum southern exposure to the living room highlighting the art glass skylights and custom abstracted wheat stalk  – a common Wright device – designed windows, while still accenting the perennial gardens outside. The open plan and furniture placement, as well as, the simple, uncomplicated furnishings, and textiles, offset continued detail to architectural features, such as built-ins and geometric column work, creating a strong emphasis of features against more subordinate ones and further drawing nature into the house.Meyer May, who commissioned Wright to design the home for his wife and himself in 1908, was a prominent Grand Rapids, Michigan, clothier and a vanguard in his time. Through hiring Wright he brought to Grand Rapids a home contrasting its traditional, Victorian and Craftsman inspired neighbors. Offering an equal insight into the modern, as well as acting as a statement against Industrialization, by changing the focus to nature and simplification of material while emphasizing craftsmanship and detail, the Meyer May house is an unrivaled example of Mid-West architecture and the now infamous “Prairie Style”.
