Midway Plaisance

Celebrate architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday with a free, outdoor family design program.

A young camperSpend an afternoon outside designing and inventing on the beautiful Midway Plaisance in Chicago. Explore natural and recycled materials as you consider how a designer’s choices about site, sun, wind, water and building materials affect our communities and the environment.

Held in partnership with the Chicago Park District, and led by students from IIT School of Architecture, this hands-on design project will focus on the importance of nature, design, teamwork, imagination, and innovation.

FREE for all ages. All participants must be accompanied by an adult. Reservations are strongly encouraged as space is limited.

These camps are currently full. For information about other free programs with the Trust or to be placed on a wait list, please email educate@flwright.org or call 708.725.3828.
