Home Studio Tour
Wright was one of the most celebrated architects of the twentieth century, period. He was able to develop a distinctly American form of architecture by experimenting with materials and making sure that each building or structure he created was designed in a way that could make a difference in our lives. He is credited with developing ‘Prairie Style’ where the emphasis is placed on blurring the distinction between interior and exterior spaces.
Know Before You Go
Tours of Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio are very popular. Arrive before noon for your best chance to see the house without a long wait. Advance reservations are not available with Go Chicago.
In 1889 Wright completed the construction of a small two-story residence in Oak Park on the Western edges of Chicago. The building was the first over which Wright exerted complete artistic control. Designed as a home for his family, the Oak Park residence was a site of experimentation for the young architect during the twenty-year period he lived there. Wright revised the design of the building multiple times, continually refining ideas that would shape his work for decades to come.
