More Architectural House Styles

The Prairie style is one of the few styles originating in the United States designed by a group of Chicago architects referred to as "the Prairie School." One of the key architects in this group was Frank Lloyd Wright who is commonly referred to as the master or father of the Prairie style. Prairie houses were designed to blend into the flat, prairie landscape. The Prairie style is closely related to the American Foursquare.
