WHAT IS THE WRIGHT PLUS HOUSEWALK?

Wright Plus is the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust’s internationally renowned annual housewalk, featuring rare interior tours of private homes and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries. Guests enjoy tours of spectacular residences, learn about their history and architecture, and share a festive day with visitors from around the country and the world.

The featured homes and buildings are in Oak Park, Illinois, where the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is also located. Walk or hop on a shuttle trolley (included with admission) to get from the parking areas and Oak Park train stops to the Orientation Center at the Home and Studio courtyard and to sites on the tour route.

Wright Plus proceeds support the restoration, preservation and education programs of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust.

WHY ATTEND?

Four homes make their Wright Plus debut in 2019 – the Francis J. Woolley House, an early Wright design hinting toward Wright’s development of the Prairie style; the George L. Smith House, a beautiful Prairie home by architect John S. Van Bergen; the Ernest P. Waud House, a stately Tallmadge & Watson; and the Ashley B. Smith residence, a charming country-home style residence by Robert E. Seyfarth. Your Wright Plus ticket also includes a complimentary tour of the Robie House, which just underwent an extensive interior restoration. Guests won’t want to miss this chance to be among the first to visit the restored masterpiece. (Offer valid through December 31, 2019).

Wright Plus is an opportunity to experience a day of world-class architecture and fascinating history in Frank Lloyd Wright's beautiful hometown. Past attendees describe the event as "Worth the trip from anywhere" and "An Architecture Pilgrimage experience.”
