Frank Lloyd Wright in Illinois

No state has more examples of Wright’s work than Illinois.  Even his home state of Wisconsin takes a back seat to the Land of Lincoln.  Illinois is home to one of my favorite Wright buildings (The Dana-Thomas House) as well as some of Wright’s most popular buildings (The Robie House, His Home and Studio and the Unity temple to name a few). 

 

As a result, I’ve visited Illinois more times than you can count on your fingers and toes.  I’ve photographed many Wright buildings and homes and toured as many as are open to me.  I hope you enjoy these photos.
