Renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright himself termed Robie House as 'the cornerstone of modern architecture'. Much of the architectural world agrees. It is not only the best representation of Wright's Prairie period, but also a national landmark. The bold horizontal lines and the overhanging roofs are distinctly Wright. The house is managed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Foundation .
I am a huge Frank Lloyd Wright fan and this was the highlight of my trip. Do keep in mind that there is a fair amount of renovation being done and at this point you can't go to the second floor. The tour guides are well informed. The only way to get inside the Robie House is to pay for a tour. The house is scheduled to be finished with renovation in 2010 when the house will be 100 years old. Even with all this it was still worth it to me to go.
