The Robie House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his client Frederick C. Robie, is considered one of the most important buildings in the history of American architecture. Designed in Wright's Oak Park studio in 1908 and completed in 1910, the building is both a masterpiece of the prairie style and renowned as a forerunner of modernism in architecture. Tours of the site offer both a first-hand experience of its amazingly contemporary spaces and the current restoration work that is returning the house to its original appearance.
Robie House is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous buildings in the Chicago area, and is a gorgeous example of an iconic architectural style from the turn of the century. It is also the perfect complement to your visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, and a must-see for any fan of architecture.

This is a great work of art! I love FLW! I think he was so brilliant, and led such an interesting life. Robie House is one of my favorites. It feels so modern, even though it's so old.
