My husband and I love Frank Lloyd Wright and have toured many of his buildings/homes, etc. but having one so close to home was a must to do tour. This home, and the other 2 on the block are different from his other work, as they were meant to be for the working class. If you get the chance I'd... 更多
This area is also known as the Burnham Block. The single block of homes are all Frank Lloyd Wright designs intended to make architectural design available to the average American. One of the homes is open for tours (check their website for hours). The others can only be seen from the outside except for special tour events.
This is not only a place to view these houses from the outside but twice a month one is available to tour on Saturday and one is available to book to stay in through Home Away. We did the later and were really pleased with our stay. Getting there from downtown is easy taking Wisconsin to 27th Street which becomes... 更多
The story of Frank Lloyd Wright is an interesting one. The house on display is original, and appears modern with a mission style, although built in 1916. This is a MUST visit when in Milwaukee. I think $15 is a little steep, but it is an unique building seen nowhere else.
One of the restored Usonian houses is open every other weekend, but drive over and take in the view from the sidewalks even if you can't take a tour. It's fascinating to see how the two-family homes evolved differently over the years. Where else can you take a picture with three or four Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the frame?... 更多
Usonian houses, even though Frank Lloyd Wright meant them for the masses, are somewhat hard to find. Many that exist have been modified and many more demolished, so it was a pleasure to find a cluster of them in this Milwaukee neighborhood. One was open when we went, but you could walk around the others enough to see them from... 更多
This is an awesome example of Wright's ability to incorporate his classic elements in a small-scale design. The use of space is extremely efficient and very interesting to view. Milwaukee is lucky to have this gem preserved.
What a treat to find frank Lloyd wright in Milwaukee! There weren't any tours available due to the time we went (a Sunday in February) but it was beautiful to see the homes. The apartments are located in a lower income area and you can see the lack of upkeep on them. However, it looks as if renovation is continuing... 更多
