Wright Plus Housewalk

May 18, 2019
Wright Plus Housewalk
Celebrating its 45th year, the 2019 Wright Plus Architectural Housewalk invites guests to experience design in Oak Park, home to the world’s largest concentration of Wright-designed buildings.

Public ticket sales are now underway for the annual Housewalk, all day on Saturday, May 18.
 
Presenting interior tours of rarely seen private homes and public buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and his contemporaries, Wright Plus 2019 features examples of Wright’s early Prairie style, as well as extraordinary residences by Wright’s fellow architects.

Wright-designed buildings on the walk include the Francis J. Woolley House (1893), an example of Wright’s emerging Prairie style; the William G. Fricke House (1901), a study in architectural geometry with distinctive wood banding and leaded glass windows; and the William E. Martin House (1903), a stunning Prairie composition featuring original murals and a water garden.

Three buildings making their Wright Plus debut, include the John S. Van Bergen-designed George L. Smith House (1914), the Ernest P. Waud House (1914), an open plan Tallmadge & Watson design, and the Ashley B. Smith House (Robert E. Seyfarth, ca. 1925), a charming French Eclectic style home.

The walk also features two lavish Prairie-style homes, the Barrett C. Andrews House (Tallmadge & Watson, 1906), a blend of Prairie style and Arts & Crafts details, and the George D. Webb House (Henry K. Holsman, 1910), A grand country home featuring elegant woodwork and original light fixtures.

Thoroughly researched presentation displays and docent-led tours are provided at each building on the Wright Plus 2019 Housewalk.

Trust members enjoy special privileges at the Housewalk, including discounted rates, optional early check-in, a member oasis area, and members-only tours.
