Frank Lloyd Wright Laurent House
A Frank Lloyd Wright–designed house that the architect called his “little gem” opened to the public as a museum earlier this month. Located about two hours outside of Chicago in Rockford, Ill., the Laurent House is the only building that Wright designed for a person with a physical disability and is one that the architect considered one of the greatest designs in his career. Currently, the Laurent House hosts tours on the first and last weekend of each month, so you can visit on June 28 and 29. Group tours are available by reservation.
Tours depart from:
Midway Village Museum

Wendingen, Journal of Architecture & Art
Wendingen (“Upheaval,” in Dutch) was a monthly journal that ran from 1918-1932. Its covers bear witness to the transition from Art Nouveau to de Stijl. Published in Amsterdam, the journal shows the profound influence of Frank Lloyd Wright: seven entire issues are devoted to Wright, including the striking black-and-red cover designed by the journal’s editor, Hendrik Wijdeveld.
- H. Th. Wijdeveld, 1925
- El Lissitzky, 1921
- B. Bijvoet and J. Duiker, 1921
- Johan Polet, 1923
