Local Architecture

February 23, 2018 • Passport To Preschool

Travel the world, and you will find people who have heard of Oak Park. Part of the reason for that is Frank Lloyd Wright, known internationally for his architecture for the Guggenheim, Falling Water and the Johnson Wax Headquarters. Wright built houses around Oak Park and the surrounding area in the Prairie Style, and this week they were our inspiration!

Frank Lloyd Wright utilized geometric shapes and blocks of color in his designs, so our students worked with those this week, too!

He may have focused on houses for people, but in Passport 2 Preschool we built Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired bird houses and we designed our own stained glass windows!
