Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House, year unknown. (Although maybe the cars are a hint?)
"The Robie House, with its dramatically cantilevered roof and strong horizontal lines, is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s classic Prairie Style residences. The house, designed in 1906, is in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood."

Nathan G. Moore House, Oak Park, Illinois, 1895; rebuilt 1923
Frank Lloyd Wright always hated the house that Nathan G. Moore asked him to design, with its faux-Tudor style. It was one of FLW’s earliest commissions, and he freely admitted that he did it only for the cash. Years later, when the top two floors of the house burned in a fire, Wright seized the chance to imbue his original design with new Mayan-Japanese flavor. You can see hints of his 1923 Imperial Hotel in the rebuilt version:
- After rebuild, 1923
- Detail of porch, 1923
- Previous version, 1895
