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!
