Wright & Like 2008 "On the Road Again"

June 7, 2008
Wright & Like 2008 "On the Road Again"

The Mid-Century Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, Russell Barr Williamson and John Randal McDonald.  On Saturday, June 7, 2008, the Wright and Like house tour will be "On the Road Again" with an outstanding tour of mid-century architecture by Frank Lloyd Wright, Russell Barr Williamson and John Randal McDonald.  Seven private residences, four designed by Wright, one by Williamson, and two by McDonald, will be available for guided interior tours.  In addition,  a "crown jewel" bank building by Louis Sullivan, Wright's mentor, will be part of the tour package.

Wright set the standard for residential living in organic architecture with his Usonian homes which are prominently featured on this tour. Russell Barr Williamson, from Milwaukee, and John Randal McDonald, from Racine, followed Wright's principles but developed their own interpretations and style.  Located in small towns that dot the south central Wisconsin landscape each tour home is a unique example of organic architecture - melding natural materials, bucolic settings and the ideas and principles of organic design into spaces that are fluid, functional and remarkably beautiful. These homes embody the mid-century modern aesthetic and lifestyle that is once again at the forefront of design.

This all-day, self-drive tour includes the communities of Beaver Dam, Columbus, Dousman, Jefferson and Oconomowoc; located north and south of Interstate Highway 94 between Madison and Milwaukee. The cost for this eight site tour is $45 in advance and $50 on the day of the tour. Members of Frank Lloyd Wright® Wisconsin receive a discount on tour tickets. For reservations or more information please call the Frank Lloyd Wright® Wisconsin office at 608-287-0339 or visit www.wrightinwisconsin.org.

The Wright and Like 2008 tour is organized by Frank Lloyd Wright® Wisconsin. All proceed benefit the organization. This annual event offers a chance to visit to some of the best buildings in Wisconsin and share in the heritage of its built environment.
