Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs are showcased in buildings all over the world. We are so fortunate to live in Wisconsin were we have access to many of his impressive structures. We’ll begin with a guided tour of the First Unitarian Society Meeting House (picture) in Madison. Completed just a few years before Wright’s death, this building has been named one of the world’s most innovative examples of church architecture.
Our next stop will be the Wright designed Monona Terrace in Madison where we will enjoy a docent lead tour followed by an included lunch at the Terrace’s Lake Vista Rooftop Café.
To conclude we’ll travel to Taliesin, Wright’s 800-acre estate overlooking the Wisconsin River near Spring Green. Among the most famous residences in the United States, Taliesin embodies Wright’s energy, technique, and creative vision. The house stands as the longest on-going project of Wright’s career. The two-hour house tour will guide us through rooms that Wright imagined and built (famed living room, garden room, loggia, bedroom, studio, etc.), and the outdoor courtyards and gardens. Moderate to significant walking with managing a few steps and walking on uneven grounds is required.
