|Frank Lloyd Wright Stamp|
Indeed! Mirabile dictu, Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867 in Richland Center, Wisconsin. He attended my Alma Mater, the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
He relocated to the Chicago area, still in a building boom following the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, and eventually became the world-class architect we know today.
Wisconsin itself is full of Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings.
Notable among them are the following.
|The Monona Terrace in Madison|
|Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Wauwatosa|
|Unitarian Meeting House in Shorewood Hills|
Frank Lloyd Wright divided his later years between estates in Spring Green, Wisconsin and Scottsdale, Arizona, where he died in 1959.
A true Wisconsinite, who pioneered the concept of planning a structure to be in harmony with its environment. A tribute to our great State of Wisconsin!
