Visit to the home of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959), the most outstanding organic architect in the United States. One of his outstanding masterpieces is the Guggenheim Museum in New York (Figure 2). But what is surprising is that he lived in Chicago before his death. Not only his own residence is open to the public (Picture 3), but the street where he lives (Picture 4) has several houses designed by him, which can be seen at the same time (Picture 5- 7)

We just stayed in Chicago for two days, so we lived in Oak Park and took public transportation to the city. In Oak Park, it is very pleasant to walk around and see F.L. Wright's house with a map. These great houses are free. Next time we will spend more time here. Here is a treasure for photography enthusiasts and architecture enthusiasts. There is a fee to visit the studio.
I don't know much about architecture and architects, but I often hear architects talk about Wright and Flowing Water Villa. It happened to be in Chicago that we lived only three miles away from his home, the small town of Oak Park, and we went there. There are many houses designed by Wright in the town, which can be called an architectural museum town.
It's so so, it just happens to be snowy, the outside scenery is not easy to take
是怀特的新婚房和工作室。从Glenview开车去的 不用一个小时、周末路边可以随便停车。这个房子设计的很精巧， 特别是那个在二楼的活动厅，把三角钢琴后半截塞进楼梯间的设计很牛！建造得也很精细。还有抽水马桶！里面的家居也是怀特设计的 ，都很精致。有导游 ，都是上了年纪的义工，个别说话声音很小。确实很冷门啊，没什么人来 ，但房子是真的漂亮 ，学建筑的和想装逼的都可以来。从这里步行至海明威出生的房子只需10分钟。海明威童年的房子设计就没有很特别，但特别温馨漂亮！
