Frederick C Robie House

Frederick C Robie House

This Hyde Park home ushered in the Prairie School and changed the face of modern architecture. Uniquely American, the design by Frank Lloyd Wright features sleek horizontal lines, a low-pitched roof, and wide open living areas to express freedom and the expansive plains of the Midwest. Art glass windows within the house became the architect’s signature.
