Usonia


Usonia

Usonia es el término utilizado por el arquitecto estadounidense Frank Lloyd Wright para referirse a su visión particular del paisaje de los Estados Unidos, incluyendo el urbanismo de sus ciudades, y la arquitectura de sus edificios. El empleo de este término en lugar del término América se basa en la intención de describir el carácter del paisaje del Nuevo Mundo, distinto y libre de convenciones arquitectónicas previas.

El término Usonian se ha empleado en ocasiones como gentilicio para Estados Unidos en lugar de American, procedente del término "U. S. citizen", en inglés.
