Two traditional houses and one modern
Architecture,  Chicago,  Postcards from the road

A postcard from Chicago: Oak Park

Frank Lloyd Wright

This is a house in Oak Park, just outside Chicago, one of several private homes in this neighbourhood designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. In my feature photo above you can clearly see the contrast between the clean horizontal lines of his Prairie style and the more traditional houses based on historical European styles of architecture.  

Although it’s not possible to go inside, we did visit several houses and other buildings designed by Wright. Watch out for a future post on his ideas and work in the Chicago area!
