Summer Slow Down: Frank Lloyd Wright House and Studio

I have been a busy gal this summer!  In between my AP classes I went to visit family in Chicago and we toured the Frank Lloyd Wright house! Here are a few pictures from my tour!


This is the front of Frank Lloyd  Wrights first house and studio. It is surrounded by a beautiful cluster of trees and landscaping.




One of my favorite parts of the house are the murals in his master bedroom and the children study/playroom.


Throughout the tour, our guide talked about Wright using his house as a way to experiment and figure out how to achieve certain things when building. Like leaving a tree growing through the wall.



Some images from his studio, where he would have clients and show off some of his amazing designs.


My family and I had lunch at Hemingway Bistro, which was a few blocks away and right across from the Hemingway museum.

This was such a great experience, I really enjoyed learning more about Wright and his work and I feel like I could use this information in my AP Art History class!

Are there any great places that you might want to take your students on a field trip? I'd love to know!

  1. This is incredible. Nobody from the outside can imagine that this house can be so beautiful inside. You have an artistic sense and have a unique collection of decorations in your home.
