Light Screens in the Prairie Style of Frank Lloyd Wright

0 loves

Born in the heartland, in suburban Chicago around 1900, the Prairie style revolutionized home design.  The movement became known as the Prairie School, and although Frank Lloyd Wright emerged as his leader, he was just one of about twenty idealistic young architects who rewrote the rules of domestic architecture. . . . A dazzling array of art glass graced nearly all Prairie houses, embellishing cabinets, French doors, skylights, and wall sconces. But the jewel-like prisms of glass danced most brilliantly in windows grouped into sweeping bands of patterns and light. . . . Simple and geometric, sparkling with flashes of color, they welcomed sunlight into a room in a way the no ordinary window could.
