Frank Lloyd Wright

Last weekend we flew to Chicago for the Frank Lloyd Wright tour of homes in the neighborhood of Oak Park. Every May the Wright Foundation organizes this tour that brings you into private homes designed either by Frank Lloyd Wright or his contemporaries and students in Oak Park. It is a beautiful neighborhood and simply walking past the houses is a wonderful experience. The weather interspersed glorious sunshine with crazy thunderstorms with temperatures ranging from the 40’s to 80’s, but despite it all, we had an amazing time. Per usual, I had my sketchbook out to quickly capture the details and jot down a few notes about the history before being gently encouraged to move along! It also came in handy while waiting in line to enter the houses. We only toured a few of the many houses, but Sunday morning we participated in worship at he Unity Temple also designed by Wright. It was the perfect culmination of the weekend!
