AD Classics: Unity Temple / Frank Lloyd Wright

Unity Temple is a Unitarian Universalist church in Oak Park, Illinois = Frank Lloyd Wright

Frederick C. Robie House. 1909. Hyde Park, Chicago, Illinois. Prairie Style. Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Walter H. Gale House in Oak Park (1893). It was the first house Frank Lloyd Wright designed after his exile from Adler Sullivan. The Gales are one of the oldest families in Oak Park, and Wright would design five houses for their family (three in Oak Park). Although technically not a bootleg building, the house shares many similar motifs of this period, taking common styles (in this case, Queen Anne) and reinterpreting it with a focus on the contrast of horizontal and vertical lines.
