All Wright 2014 House Walk, Oak Park Illinois

Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Oak Park Illinois

This year was a milestone year for the Frank Lloyd Wright House Walk Tour in Oak Park Illinois. It was the 125th anniversary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and the 40th anniversary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust.

I had always wanted to attend a FLW House Walk Tour but never thought I would make it to Chicago to do so. Chicago was a scary big city, expensive to get to (it’s actually cheaper for me to fly to the east coast than to Chicago) and I was positive no one would want to spend an entire day traipsing though a bunch of FLW homes with me.

If you have been reading my blog for a while you may have figured out that I am a Frank Lloyd Wright fan. I collect FLW house tours like one collects ball-caps of their favorite baseball team. There are a few houses that Wright designed that one should visit in my opinion: Fallingwater, Taliesin, Taliesin West, Wright’s Home and Studio and lastly The Frederick C Robie House. The Robie House is a stunning representation of Wright’s Prairie Style work.
