Robie House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright 1909

    Newer Older

    The Robie House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his client Frederick C. Robie, is considered one of the most important buildings in the history of American architecture. Designed in Wright's Oak Park studio in 1908 and completed in 1910, the building inspired an architectural revolution. Its sweeping horizontal lines, dramatic overhangs, stretches of art glass windows and open floor plan make it a quintessential Prairie style house. Although it was designed one hundred years ago, the building remains a masterpiece of modern architecture.

      Groundbreaking for 1909; 101 years ago. It's too bad it wasn't appreciated more. Other architects should have used this architecture in their own work for a more functional and beautiful world. Excellent photo!
