Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House turns 100 in 2010, and The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust is celebrating throughout the year. In commemoration, all sorts of new opportunities for visiting the modern icon are being made available to the public:
New programs include family workshops, in-depth examinations of the museum, social events, themed guided tours and self-guided tours. For more information, visit GoWright.org.
Noted for its open floorplan, the Robie House was cutting edge in its day, and remains so even now. Other modern features of the 1909 design are stretches of windows, strong horizontal lines, built-in furnishings, and the use of steel framing to dissolve enclosing walls.
