Chicago Tour Description

A Private Tour out of Chicago

Visit some of FLW’s finest designs on a trip to Racine and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This day trip explores some of FLW’s most notable buildings in eastern Wisconsin. Come experience; “the enhancement of nature by human consciousness”. You will see, feel, and better understand FLW’s meaning of “Organic Architecture”.

FLW quote: “Nature is the best model for a builder of houses. Homes must grow comfortably from their site and blend with whatever natural forms are there–and if there are none, emulate them in a manner that is organic. “

Witness first hand how Mr. Wright authenticated “organic architecture” in the SC Johnson office building and research tower, his final Prairie style home “Wingspread”, American System-Built Homes, and the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.

FLW quote: “I know my clients better than themselves. They tell me what they want, but I know what they really want. “

We’ll dive into a few of the stunning stories related to Mr. Wright’s narcissism, scandalous, and tragic life while simultaneously admiring his innovative work.

COVID-19 Information

Chicago Running Tours & More is now closed for business. The business is available for anyone interested. I will consider all offers. If no interest, I will dissolve it on November 1st, 2020. It has been a terrific “run” since 2013. The business has won “4” Best of Chicago awards and “1” Best tour company in the state of Illinois. I will hand the trophies over to the party who takes over business.

During the Covid down time I set up a new business. It is called “RoadTrip Chicago – Private Tours“. Official launch date is August 2nd, 2020.

A direct link to the new site will soon be available.
