This is one of a series of planning drawings of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright's groundbreaking Frederick C. Robie House that is hosted by the Library of Congress' Historic American Buildings Survey. The Chicago building, considered by some to be among the most important works of American architecture, was started in 1908 and finished in 1910. It is perhaps the best-known example of Wright's Prairie style and is said to be a precursor to modernism.
