Frederick C. Robie House

5757 South Woodlawn Ave.
Chicago , IL , United States http://www.gowright.org/research/wright-robie-house.html
(708) 848-1976

Located on the University of Chicago campus, this landmark is considered one of the most significant structures in American architecture. Designed in 1908 by world-renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright for businessman Frederick C. Robie, the building is also the nation’s foremost example of the Prairie style. Inspired by the American Midwest landscape where he grew up, Wright’s Prairie style is defined by a horizontal line, low-pitched hipped roof, and wide overhanging eaves. During a one-hour guided tour (available Monday through Thursday) or self-guided audio tour, visitors can also explore the three-story interior, outfitted with built-in furnishings and art glass windows.
