Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio

The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio was the private residence and workplace of Wright from 1889 to 1909 - the first 20 years of his career.  Wright used his home as an architectural laboratory wherein you can find the seeds of his architectural philosophy.  At this residence he raised six children with his first wife, Catherine Tobin. In 1898, Wright added a studio where he and his associates developed a new American architecture: the Prairie style, and designed 125 structures, including such famous buildings as the Robie House, the Larkin Building and Unity Temple.
