Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home & Studio Tour

Discover one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s enduring masterpieces—and learn all about the Prairie school of architecture—when you visit his Oak Park Home and Studio. Known as the birthplace for Wright’s vision of American architecture, the landmark is recognizable for its flowing rooms and rich, wooden textures. 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 of 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. Afterwards, enjoy lunch on your own at Lazy Dogs Restaurant. Trip includes transportation by Park District bus and tour. Extensive walking and standing.
