From Artistic Houses to the Prairie Home: Domestic Interiors of Chicago’s Gilded Age

Join the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust for an ongoing series of presentations that engage our community with the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright and the rich and varied histories of the neighborhoods in which he defined his visionary Prairie style.

With programs held citywide and centered around the Preservation Trust’s three main sites in Oak Park, downtown Chicago, and Hyde Park, Wright Around Chicago brings an expansive interpretation to Wright’s work, considering it within the context of the city that was his home.

This presentation will explore developments in American domestic architecture of the Gilded Age through specific Chicago examples, including the Samuel M. Nickerson House (Burling & Whitehouse, 1883), the John J. Glessner House (H.H. Richardson, 1887), the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio (Frank Lloyd Wright, 1889/1898), the James Charnley House (Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright, 1891), and the Frederick C. Robie House (Frank Lloyd Wright, 1910).
