Restored Wright House in Chicago Opens for Visits
The Emil Bach House by Frank Lloyd Wright can now be part of your Off the Map architectural tour.
Designed in 1915, the house, located at the far northern edge of Chicago, offers a glimpse into the post-Prairie period work of Wright, smaller, flat-roofed urban homes with a more streamlined appearance.
This design would also be brought to life in Wright's rarely-experienced 1915 subdivision, Ravine Bluffs, in the Chicago suburb of Glencoe, along Lake Michigan's North Shore.
Off the Map can take you to the Bach house, where tours are offered each Wednesday and Thursday, and then we can make the drive south to Hyde Park to tour Wright's greatest Prairie opus, the revolutionary Robie House.
Or choose to visit the Bach House and then we'll drive up the North Shore to visit Wright's Ravine Bluffs, featuring his only built bridge, and to see his first Prairie house, the Willits House of 1901. Along the way, we view significant work by John van Bergen, who worked in Wright's Oak Park studio, as well as mid-century masterpieces by prominent Chicago masterpieces.
