Description


This tour brings students into the home and studio where Frank Lloyd Wright began his historic career. A Docent will explain the history of the home and Wright’s transition from employee at a Chicago firm to the development of the Prairie style of architecture in the studio that was added to the home in 1898. A fellow-architect described the studio as a workplace with “inspiration everywhere.” After we get inspired, we will get lunch and finish up with a tour of the Robie House at the University of Chicago.
