Now is your chance to step inside Chicago's rich architectural history and tour Wright's designs with All Wright 2014! Learn more about this unique, fantastic opportunity.
Put on by The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, this year's housewalk is the Trust's 40th annual Wright Plus Architectural Housewalk, also marking the 125th anniversary of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio. The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust provides public tours adn educational programs at his major designs around the city, including structures, homes, Loop buildings (including The Rookery Light Court), and Hyde Park homes. Though this Housewalk will take place 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 17, 2014, tickets are on sale now - and going fast.
Eight of Lloyd Wright's private home designs will be featured on the tour, and at each house, guides will be on hand to talk about the original owners, design details and restoration. You'll be walking out of each tour with enough Chicago history knowledge to impress any friends and family, visiting or local.
You'll also find on the tour the place where these innovative homes were conceived: Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio, the oldest Wright building open as a public museum. Other public sites on the Housewalk - Unity Temple and Frederick C. Robie House - were designed in this very Oak Park studio, the area which boasts the largest concentration of Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings anyway.
Tickets are $125 each and $100 for members of the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust. To buy tickets and for more information, click here.
