Frank Lloyd Wright
 
location Illinois, Chicago
function museum, private house
contributed by rtaube

Finished in 1910, the Robie House is the last and one of the best examples of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style of architecture, a style whose influence derives from the landscape and plant life of the Midwest prairies of the United States. The building has a low-proportioned, horizontal profile which gives it the appearance of spreading out on flat prairie land. Steel-framed cantilevered roof overhangs, continuous bands of art-glass windows and doors, and the use of natural materials are typical Prairie Style features which emphasize the horizonal line of the building. In the late 1990's the house was turned into a museum, and it is now open to the public.
