Guided Bus Tour
“It gets you into magnificent places… by the end of the day you can frequently identify the Prairie School design and Wright’s influence in the architecture of the buildings you’re seeing.”
Chicago is where the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright spent the first 20 years of his career. Leave the driving to us as you experience the best of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Chicago with expert commentary about the life and work of the man who established a uniquely American style of architecture, and interior tours of his famous sites.
Begin the coach tour at the spectacular Light Court remodeled by Wright in The Rookery, an early Chicago skyscraper. Then head to suburban Oak Park, which boasts more Wright residences than anywhere in the world. Experience Unity Temple, which is Frank Lloyd Wright’s only surviving public building from his Prairie period.
Tour the famed Home and Studio, Wright’s home which also served as his design laboratory where he experimented with space and form. Before enjoying lunch at an Oak Park restaurant, explore the surrounding Historic District with one of our interpreters.
Take in the spectacular city skyline as you travel along scenic Lake Shore Drive to historic Hyde Park for a tour of the magnificently restored Frederick C. Robie House, Wright’s best-known Prairie masterpiece and a precursor of modernism in architecture.
The excursion will end at The Rookery Building, where we will raise a glass of Prosecco to celebrate Frank Lloyd Wright’s enduring legacy.
