The Robie House

Completed in 1910, the Frederick C Robie house is considered Frank Lloyd Wrights finest example of his Prairie Style architecture. It just happens to be one of my all time favourite buildings and probably my favourite FLW...well we haven't got to Fallingwater yet....Unlike the previous Wrights I visited, this one is located in the suburb of Hyde Park, to the south of downtown Chicago and is now on the grounds of the University of Chicago. (Oak Park is west of Chicago). Sadly photos were not allowed inside, although it is a bit rough inside, still undergoing major restoration work.
