Dana-Thomas House

recommendation by emma

In 1902, Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to reconstruct this family home for patron Susan Lawrence Dana. Wright’s penchant for organic architecture, Japanese aesthetics, and Prairie Style design were key inspirations for this estate. The flat, Illinois plain lands were ideal for this because like the flat lands, Prairie Style relies heavily on horizontal lines and flat, hipped roofs. Since its completion in 1904, the Dana-Thomas house has been turned into a modern museum for Wright-buffs.
