Robie House, Frank Lloyd Wright

Robie House, Frank Lloyd Wright

Take a tour of the Hyde Park-home that revolutionized American architecture. Where once there were only formal, European-inspired living spaces (small, separate rooms; crown molding; gabled roofs) there were suddenly open floor plans and endless panes of windows that let the outside in. Visionary designer Frank Lloyd Wright took inspiration from the Midwestern plains and evolving, laidback lifestyles of his fellow Chicagoans.
