The Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio (1889/1898) served as Wright's private residence and workplace from 1889 to 1909—the first 20 years of his career. Wright used his home as an architectural laboratory, experimenting with design concepts that contain the seeds of his architectural philosophy. Here he raised six children with his first wife, Catherine Tobin.

In 1898 Wright added a studio, described by a fellow-architect as a workplace with "inspiration everywhere." In the Studio, Wright and his associates developed a new American architecture, the Prairie style, and designed 125 structures, including such famous buildings as the Robie House, the Larkin Building and Unity Temple. We invite you to visit and experience the restored site as it appeared in 1909, the last year that Wright lived in the Home and worked in the Studio.

Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures and completed 500 works. Wright believed in designing structures which were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_architecture). This philosophy was best exemplified by his design for Fallingwater (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallingwater) (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture".[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Lloyd_Wright#cite_note-autogenerated1-1) Wright was a leader of the Prairie School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prairie_School) movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usonia) home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States.
