For years surrounding college, I lived in the Chicago area, and Wright's home and studio is in Oak Park, Illinois, a near suburb. I don't recall what possessed me to take the tour - just a random dull Saturday in the fall - but I learned things that have stuck with me to this day. Things like:
Floating/Faux columns. His studio was full of columns rising toward the ceiling but appearing to stop 8-10 inches shy. Faux columns on corners, and all over.
FLW liked a house full of light. He hated draperies blocking the natural light from the windows. Yet, he wanted privacy! Solution: leaded windows. Each pane reflects light at a slightly different angle, so nobody could see in. Brilliant! (That, and he had his home and studio set far back from the sidewalk, which was trimmed with a large hedge.)
Natural wood, and whitewashed walls. It's a lovely, clean look!
I've not seen any of the buildings he designed, but I think I learned enough from that random tour of his home, that my curiosity of his other designs is reduced.
Moral of the story: A lot can be learned on a random dull Saturday!
