Exceptional architecture is a vital part of what makes Oak Park a unique village. From Victorian to bungalow, Italianate to colonial, art deco to mid-century modern – Oak Park is a village that is proud of its’ rich, diverse, housing styles that add uniqueness and flair to our community.
No Oak Park architectural musings would be complete without highlighting the architect who helped to put Oak Park on the proverbial architectural map but Frank Lloyd Wright (celebrating his 150th this year as well!) and his Prairie style designs. There is no better way to experience some of Oak Park’s finest architectural offerings then by taking one of the many tours offered through the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio.
The options are many: daily tours of the home and studio, walking neighborhood tours, combination home and studio & neighborhood tours, guided bike tours, customized tours for larger groups, accessible tours, and interior tours of the completely renovated Unity Temple.
The docents on all guided tour options are a much added and appreciated bonus enhancing the experience by providing historical flavor, noteworthy insights into the properties, their owners and the architects that designed them.
Whether you already live in Oak Park, have recently moved to the Village or are just visiting Oak Park architecture should be on your “must do” list.
