Frank Lloyd Wright
|This "Prairie Style" house has projecting bands of Roman brick which emphasize the horizontal lines of the structure. The wide over-hanging roof associates the building with the flat contours of nature and serves as a protection against the extremes of temperature. The main living area is on the second floor with a children's playroom and laundry area on the first. The wide, low entrance arch has parallels with H. H. Richardson's entrances. See especially his Glessner House in Chicago.|
