This field trip offers a guided tour with insights into Frank Lloyd Wright's family life and architectural career in Oak Park. Frank Lloyd Wright used his first home to experiment with design concepts that contain the seeds of his architectural philosophy.
In his adjacent studio, Wright and his associates developed a new American architecture - the Prairie style. After visiting the Home and Studio, we will take a three-block walk to the Unity Temple. Designed in Wright’s Oak Park Studio for his own Unitarian congregation, it is one of the first public buildings in America to feature exposed concrete and is Wright’s greatest public building of his Prairie era.
