Full description
Your tour begins at the Chicago Architecture Center, where you'll board an air-conditioned coach for the one hour drive to Oak Park, Illinois, with live commentary on board. Your first stop will be the Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio. Although it might not stand out at first, it is an early expression of the ideas that ultimately became the Prairie School.

On your one-hour guided tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Home and Studio, you'll learn about the famous architects who studied there, including William Drummond, Barry Byrne, Walter Burley Griffin, and Marion Mahony Griffin. Then, enjoy a 45-minute walking tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District, followed by an interior visit to Wright's newly restored masterpiece, Unity Temple.

At the end of your tour, you'll board your coach and return to the Chicago Architecture Center where you can visit the current exhibits. In the Chicago Gallery, experience the popular Chicago Model featuring over 4,000 buildings. A film and light show illuminates the model with the amazing story of Chicago’s early growth, rebirth after the Great Chicago Fire, first-ever skyscrapers, and modernist masterpieces of steel and glass.
