Chicagoans interested in art and architecture certainly have plenty to see within the confines of their fair city. The works of architectural iconoclasts like Frank Lloyd Wright and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe can be found all over the city.
Wright’s Robie House, located on the University of Chicago campus, in Hyde Park, continues to delight and amaze its visitors, for instance. And many of Mies van der Rohe’s apartments and skyscrapers can still be found throughout downtown Chicago.
But architecture enthusiasts ought to be encouraged to venture past Chicago’s city limits from time to time.
The suburb of Oak Park—located only a short distance from the city—is home to more of Wright’s handiwork than any other town or city in the country. And Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House, located near Plano, Illinois, is well worth a trip, as well.
