Discover Wright’s designs with your students by visiting a Trust site. Onsite programs are offered at the Home and Studio or Frederick C. Robie House, address STEAM and Common Core Standards, and are differentiated for student needs and grade levels.
Inspired by the Midwest landscape and designed in harmony with the world of nature, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie buildings revolutionized the design of the American home.
Investigate the Robie House using Pentominoes to uncover the geometric shapes and forms that make up Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style masterpiece. Then work inside the billiard room to use the 3-D puzzle pieces to design and build your own Prairie style home. This program includes a 45 minute tour and 45 minute workshop.
