The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909--the first 20 years of his career. Here Wright developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style. Trained interpreters offer insights...more
Went with a Wright enthusiast although I wasn’t familiar with his work. Nevertheless it was very interesting to see the turn of the century architecture. This was his personal home and one of his earlier works from what I understand. Those familiar with his work...More
