Series of the Week: "Get Wright back to you"

On 21 May was the annual Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust's Wright Plus housewalk (http://gowright.org/wright-plus.html).  For one day an attendee could tour eight private homes in Oak Park, plus three landmark buildings in Oak Park and Chicago.  Along with other early 20th Century talents like Albert Kahn (Detroit), Alden B. Dow (Midland), and Adler & Sullivan (Chicago), Frank Lloyd Wright challenged and redefined people's relationship with buildings.  With the help of dedicated owners and committed local and national preservations groups much of his work has been protected, restored, and, in some cases, open to the public.   This week: FLW masterpieces!
