From 1889 unitl 1909 the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio was Wright's private residence and workplace and he used the space as an experimental architectural laboratory, as well as a place to raise six children, which he did with first wife, Catherine Tobin. Come for a glimpse into his fascinating world.

Who is Frank Lloyd Wright you might ask?

One of the most celebrated architects of the twentieth century, period. Wright was able to develop a distinctly American form of architecture by experimenting with forms and materials and making sure that each building or structure he created was designed in way that it could make a difference in our lives.

In the Studio porition of Wright’s property, which a fellow architect described as having "inspiration everywhere,” the visionary and his associates designed 125 structures, including such famous buildings as the Robie House, the Larkin Building and Unity Temple.

Wright is credit with developing “prairie Style.” In this style, emphasis is placed on blurring the distinction between interior and exterior spaces. According to Wright: “The prairie has a beauty of its own and we should recognize and accentuate this natural beauty, its quiet level. Hence, gently sloping roofs, low proportions, quiet sky lines, suppressed heavy-set chimneys and sheltering overhangs, low terraces and out-reaching walls sequestering private gardens.”

Visit and experience the restored Home and Studio site as it appeared in 1909, the final year that Wright called the property home (and work).

A "Must See" for any Frank LW Enthusiast

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Tour:

This first home of FLW was very interesting and well run. There were many visitors from all over the world touring and we had to wait 30 minutes until our tour departed but the time pasted quickly in the gift shop which was filled with books and all things FLW. I really felt I wanted to see more on the walking tour of the neighborhood but we ran out of time.
