Exterior of the Dana House in Springfield, Illinois, designed in 1902
In 1902, Susan Lawrence Dana commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to design her home in Springfield, Illinois. It is a splendid example of Wright's Prairie Style homes, featuring low horizontal rooflines, wide eaves, artglass windows, an open floor plan and dominant hearth. It boasts hundreds of pieces of furniture, fixtures, and artworks designed by Wright, still in their original positions today. 12,000 square feet of living space is distributed on 3 main levels, with 16 different levels in all.
Now owned by the State of Illinois, it is open to the public.
This is a deliniation of the exterior of the house from the Wasmuth Portfolio of Wright's work (1910).
