Robie House
Robie House
Frank Lloyd Wright is considered one of the nation's most innovative architects. The masterpiece of his early work is Robie House in Chicago, which Wright designed for manufacturer Frederick C. Robie. Completed in 1910, the house epitomizes the architect's Prairie House style and features 174 art glass windows. {"Now the outside may come inside," wrote Wright, "and the inside may, and does, go outside."} Although neighbors were initially critical of Wright's creation, Robie House is now seen as a cornerstone of modern architecture.
