Frank Lloyd Wright tour

Posted on May 25, 2018

Brant and Ashley spent a cold week in April travelling though Illinois and Wisconsin, visiting some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s best-known work (and a few obscure examples too). Highlights included the beautifully restored Unity Temple in Oak Park with its clever three tiered seating arrangement, and Wingspread – a house built for Herbert F. Johnson Jr., who later commissioned Wright to design the Johnson Wax Headquarters in Racine.

Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright (clockwise from left): Wingspread, Wind Point, Wisconsin (1938-39); Unity Temple – interior, Oak Park, Illinois (1905-1908); Unity Temple – exterior, Oak Park, Illinois (1905-1908); Johnson Wax Headquarters – Research Tower, Racine, Wisconsin (1944-1950); Nathan G. Moore Residence, Oak Park, Illinois (1985, rebuilt after fire 1923); Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin (1956-1961).
