Prairie school

Refers to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright’s contemporaries and followers, who adopted the style suited to the midwest, rather than to Wright’s work itself.

Prairie School

A highly original group of influential architects in Chicago, closely associated with the early work of Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) and, to a lesser extent, with Louis H. Sullivan (1856–1924) and their followers. The Prairie School was also influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement in England. Many of the early works created by this school are in the prairie style.
