Robie House - Frank Lloyd Wright

The 1903 Robie House, in Hyde Park, Chicago. A revolution in space and expression, and designated even by the American Institute of Architects as one of the top five buildings in the United States.

Funny you should say that, Os. The neighbours at the time dubbed it 'The Battleship.'

Just a quick note; the Robie House is actually located in Hyde Park, near the University of Chicago on the near south side of Chicago.

Although there are many FLW buildings in Oak Park, including his famous Home & Studio as well as Unity Temple, the Robie House is not one of them.

Good afternoon – my name is Kelly Ramsey and I am the new Director of Communications with Habitat for Humanity of Collier County. I am wondering if I can use the image Jerome Winer on Frank Lloyd Wright for an ad that will be going into a newspaper supplement. Full credit to the author of course. As I am on an deadline can you please respond asap. Thank You very much.
