PERIOD OF POPULARITY: Roughly – BACKGROUND AND INSPIRATION: This is one of the few indigenous American styles, developed by a creative group of Chicago architects known collectively as the Prairie School.

The Prairie style emerged in Chicago around from the work of a group of young architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright. These architects melded the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement, with its emphasis on nature, craftsmanship and simplicity, and the work and writings of architect Louis Sullivan.

They embraced Sullivan’s architectural theories, which called for non-derivative, distinctly. In addition to helping invent the Prairie School style of architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright single-handedly created a building philosophy known as Usonian.

Usonian is a term that usually refers to a series of approximately sixty middle-income family homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright beginning in. Prairie School was a late 19th and early 20th century architectural style.

It has its roots in the city of Chicago, Illinois. It was most common in the Midwestern United States, but its influence was felt around the world— especially in north-central Europe and Australia. From roughly untilWright's designs and writings influenced American architecture, bringing a modernity that became truly American.

Its origins date from the s. Prairie School interiors are of a piece with the exterior style. Horizontal emphasis, grouped windows (often with art glass), and integrated architecture continue inside.

Seating, storage, and lighting is often built into the architecture of rooms. Inspired by the broad, flat landscape of America’s Midwest, the Prairie style was the first uniquely American architectural style of what has been called “the American Century.” During his early years in Chicago, Wright did not operate in a vacuum.

The Prairie style is one of the few styles originating in the United States designed by a group of Chicago architects referred to as "the Prairie School." One of the key architects in this group was Frank Lloyd Wright who is commonly referred to as the master or father of the Prairie style.

Prairie style, in architecture, American style exemplified by the low-lying “prairie houses” such as Robie House () that were for the most part built in the Midwest between and by. The Prairie style is a true American creation, developed by an American architectural legend, Frank Lloyd Wright.

Wright was part of an impressive group of talented architects known as the Prairie School working in Chicago at the turn of the 20th century. The Prairie House, built for Greene and his young family inpops up from time to time in architecture books, usually presented as a diverting proposition, an image of.
