World's Best Cities for Architecture Lovers


FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S PRAIRIE SCHOOL

Mason City, Iowa

Inspired by the flat terrain and open sky of the Midwest, Wright's Prairie School was defined by bold, horizontal lines, low profiles, natural lighting, and an uninterrupted flow within and between interior and exterior spaces. He used this style when commissioned to design G.C. Stockman's house in 1908 (pictured here); neighbors (and some copycat architects) followed suit, which is why this small Iowa town has one of the largest collections of Prairie-style homes in the world.
