Frank Lloyd Wright was an exceptional architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 projects, which resulted in more than 500 completed works. Many of these completed works are located in our Chicago Area.
Wright was ahead of his time promoting 'organic architecture' (promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world), was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture of which we are all familiar. His work included original and innovative examples of many different building types, including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. Wright also often designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and stained glass.
So what if anything of 'Mr. FLW' is on the market now? Plenty! So I thought I would show you just a few samplings right here in our own backyard!
