It isn’t often that you get to party in an architectural masterpiece, but in the month of April the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust gives you that opportunity.
April After Hours at Robie House is a festive, casual gathering with live music, drinks, and light hors d’oeuvres. During the evening, guests will have the chance to explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s quintessential Prairie-School home at their leisure. April After Hours allows access to Robie House’s balconies and private spaces, which include three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the third floor.
The Robie House may be one of Wright’s last Prarie-style homes, but it might be one of the best representation of the iconic American architecture style. The strong horizontal planes and expansive spaces are inspired by the Midwestern prairie. The American Association of Architects named Robie House one of the “10 most significant buildings of the 20th Century.” Wright’s Robie House features an open floor plan, which introduced a new way of American living that reverberates today.
April After Hours at Robie House will take place every Friday in April from 5:00 p.m. — 8:00 p.m. at Robie House located at 5757 S. Woodlawn Avenue. Tickets are $30 for Trust members and $35 for non-members. For more information visit flwright.org/programs/afterhoursrobie.
