Robie House, Chicago, Frank Lloyd Wright

Chicago’s Hyde Park is the site of Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed Robie House, built between 1908-1910, that represented the greatest example of Wright’s Prairie style, the first style of architecture considered to be truly American. The house was built on a 60 x 180-foot, typical urban lot in the neighborhood. The Robie family moved into its new home in May 1910. Interior decorating was not completed until January of the following year. Total cost of the house, including furniture, was $58,500, under the project budget of $60,000. Sold to the Chicago Theological Seminary in 1926, an effort by the school to demolish the house to make room for a dormitory. The City of Chicago blocked demolition by declaring the Robie House a Chicago landmark.
