Not many architectsâ names summon automatic recognition — but Frank Lloyd Wrightâs does however.
Born after the end of the Civil War, he trained with Adler and Sullivan, a Chicago architecture firm. He built his first home in Oak Park, a suburb of the Windy City and the home was punctuated by Wrightâs now signature geometric shapes.
After striking out on his own, he built a number of Usonian homes, a word used to describe Wrightâs vision of a world free of previous architectural conventions.
One of those homes was built in HoustonÂ –Â or Bunker Hill to be exact — and itâs up for sale. We couldnât pass up this opportunity to tour it, and so Houston Mattersâ Edel Howlin went to take a look.
