The Robie House - Frank Lloyd Wright

robieHousepic1 In many ways the culmination of Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Prairie House' phase in both drama and spatial sophistication, the Robie House of 1908-10 is currently undergoing restoration to restore it to its former glory, before reopening as a fully restored architectural house museum on May 1, 2010. 

Story here at Prairie Mod, and more details including pictures here at the FL Wright Preservation Trust.

And more pictures here, including the original presentation sketch.

This is the first Lloyd Wright I've seen I'm not all that enamoured with: its very institutional looking, especially the colour photos on the link. Too many straight lines and plains.

Obviously, Mark, you don't have an eye for the sophistication of FLW's work...

And it should be "Frank Lloyd Wright"... apparently...

Lloyd Wright was his son...
