Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust [IL]

The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust works to chronicle the life and work of Frank Lloyd Wright, widely regarded as America's most influential architect. The trust maintains Wright's first home and studio, which is located in Oak Park, Illinois, and the Robie House, a masterpiece designed by Wright for his client Frederick Robie.

The trust offers a variety of guided and self guided tours of these landmark buildings. In addition, the trust offers the Wright Plus architectural housewalk, youth architecture workshops, field trip programs, and professional development programs for teachers. The website offers visitor information, a brief biography of Wright, information regarding the two homes maintained by the trust, and information regarding all of the trust's programs.
