Frank Lloyd Wright To 1910
Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is considered by many to be one of the 20th century's finest and most prolific architects - in fact, in 1991 the American Institute of Architects named him as 'the greatest American architect of all time.' In 1910, after continued controversy surrounding his personal life and his relationship with Bothwick Cheney, Wright moved to Europe for a year, settling in the town of Fiesole, near Florence.

Robie House, located in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood, is considered to be Frank Lloyd Wright's most accomplished Prairie-style work. Prairie style is acknowledged as the first truly American style, characterized by dominating horizontal lines, banded rows of windows and spacious, open floor plans.
