We’re architect groupies. We’re not afraid to admit it. To that end, when we heard about The Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust’s In Wright’s Drafting Room: Architecture Fantasy Camp at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio—a National Historic Landmark in Oak Park, IL, we began to dream in beams.
From June 12-15 and October 2-5, this adult workshop offers amateur design enthusiasts the chance-of-a-lifetime opportunity to create unique designs with the assistance of a professional architect.
Within the awe-inspiring Drafting Room of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Oak Park Studio, where the famed architect created world-renowned structures such as Robie House and Unity Temple and created the Prairie style of architecture, guests from around the world receive great personal attention with an accomplished architect to plan and design a structure of their own as the Preservation Trust allows a maximum of only twelve participants. The best part? No architecture experience is necessary, as the skilled designers will help participants create a new addition to their home, remodel part of their residence or design a picturesque dream home. Attendees also enjoy a private, in-depth tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio and Wright’s Frederick C. Robie House as well as a self-guided tour of Unity Temple. Past participants have used their Architecture Fantasy Camp designs to build actual homes.
Tickets for In Wright’s Drafting Room: Architecture Fantasy Camp are $500 for Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust members and $550 for non-members. For more information please visit GoWright.org
