Prairie School Design Workshop
Students entering 7th through 12th grade will explore the influence of geometry on Wright’s architecture, learn to use drafting tools and interpret architectural plans, create their own design for a "client," and experience a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Wright’s architectural laboratory where he experimented with design concepts that shaped his architectural philosophy. Students will also build a 3-dimensional two-story Prairie style model and participate in an architectural critique. They will study Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie style of architecture through exploring the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District in Oak Park and visiting Wright’s Robie House, one of the most important buildings in the history of American architecture
