Workshop Themes

Geometry
Explore how Wright uses simple geometric shapes to create new and surprising designs and patterns. Build with Froebel blocks, design unique art glass pieces, or create the next innovative style of architecture.

Nature
Become inspired by nature and the Midwest landscape! Wright created a new, American architecture that featured bold, horizontal lines, hipped roofs, planters filled with plants and shrubs, simple materials, and a natural color palette. Explore Wright’s Prairie style and the unique patterns and colors found in nature.

Organic Design
Wright designed each of his buildings as an organic whole going beyond the structure to include furniture, rugs, and light fixtures. Apply the concept of organic design to the built environment around you. Related theme: Accessibility
