The Wright drive in Wisconsin

There’s a new Frank Lloyd Wright Trail in Wisconsin, the state the American architect was born in 150 years ago this year. As a kid, Wright spent summers working on his uncle’s farm in Spring Green, and eventually built his own home and studio a couple of kilometres away. The self-drive trail takes about two days by car and crosses through nine counties. The nine stops along the 300-plus kilometres include homes and mansions, churches, schools, workspaces and more. They were all designed by Wright between 1915 and the 1950s. The Great Workroom at the Johnson Wax Headquarters features massive tree-inspired columns; the First Unitarian Society Meeting House has a pitched copper roof, deep-red concrete floor and prow of interlacing wood and glass; Monona Terrace is a huge curvilinear gathering place on Lake Monana. travelwisconsin.com/frank-lloyd-wright.
