The Frank Lloyd Wright Trust will present its 2019 Wright Plus Housewalk on Saturday, May 18, in Oak Park.

Wright-designed buildings on the walk include the William G. Fricke House ( 1901 ), a study in architectural geometry with distinctive wood banding and leaded glass windows; the William E. Martin House ( 1903 ), a Prairie composition featuring original murals and a water garden; and the Francis J. Woolley House( 1893 ), an example of Wright's pre-Prairie style work, on the walk for the first time.

Also making their Wright Plus debuts are the John S. Van Bergen-designed George L. Smith House ( 1914 ), featuring original art glass windows throughout; the Ernest P. Waud House ( 1914 ), an open-plan Tallmadge & Watson design with Prairie style furniture; and the Ashley B. Smith House ( ca. 1925 ), a French Eclectic style home designed by Wright contemporary Robert E. Seyfarth.

The walk will also feature two lavish Prairie-style homes—the Barrett C. Andrews House ( Tallmadge & Watson, 1906 ), a blend of Prairie style and Arts & Crafts details; and the George D. Webb House ( Henry K. Holsman, 1910 ), a country home featuring elegant woodwork and original light fixtures.

In addition, visitors are invited to tour Frank Lloyd Wright's home and studio where Wright experimented with space, light, materials, furnishings and decorative arts, as well as Unity Temple, often called Wright's greatest public building of his Prairie era.

Tickets start at $90 ( until Feb. 28 ), then increase by $5 to $10 monthly on a tiered pricing schedule; visit flwright.org/wrightplus/tickets .
