Not many architects’ names summon automatic recognition — but Frank Lloyd Wright’s 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 Wright’s now signature geometric shapes.

After striking out on his own, he built a number of Usonian homes, a word used to describe Wright’s vision of a world free of previous architectural conventions.

One of those homes was built in Houston – or Bunker Hill to be exact — and it’s up for sale. We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to tour it, and so Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin went to take a look.
