We visited the lovely village of Oak Park IL last September and toured Frank Lloyd Wright's museum and some of the beautiful homes that he designed in that neighborhood.
What struck me was the attention to detail, even in the window casings, and the design elements taken from native American symbols, as well as architectural touches that still influence designers today.
The museum tour is for a fee (a nominal one) but anyone can walk the blocks and see the exterior of these homes for free!
Absolutely fantastic and well worth a short drive north from Chicago.
Never been to Northwestern U.
I had a similar situation that The Professor had on my last trip to Chicago at Miracle Mile Marriott. Sort of said "I was done for awhile with Chicago", but am thinking more about going back. By the way, this tour boat on the Chicago River took me on an "Architecture tour" of Chicago. It was a lot of fun and most interesting. Here are a few photo's from The First Lady. The last picture is the new Trump Tower.
You left coasters need to get a better compass. If you're looking for Eastern Frank Lloyd Wright you'll need to take a short ride from Pittsburgh. That's where you'll find Fallingwater....FLW was at the top of his game!! We stopped there a couple of years ago. Well worth the trip if you're in the area.
PS FLW also did the campus at Florida Southern in Lakeland FL, which is worth a visit,
Thanks Steppingstones - these would make a great photo album!
