Famed American architect Frank Lloyd Wright spent the beginning 20 years of his career here in the Chicago area. His influence can be seen in Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Originally from Richland Center, Wisconsin, Wright attended college at University of Wisconsin-Madison. He left school without completing a degree and headed to Chicago in 1887 in search of employment. Development throughout Chicago boomed in response to a quickly increasing population and the devastation due to the Great Chicago Fire. As a result, Chicago was the perfect incubator for Wright.
