Wright Sites in Iowa

Frank Lloyd Wright designed 11 buildings in Iowa, making it an important center of his work in the Midwest. His first commission in the state was the Dr. G.C. Stockman House in Mason City, which was completed in 1908. This was a Prairie School style house, which is characterized by its low-pitched roofs, large windows, and open floor plans. Wright designed several other Prairie style buildings in Iowa, including the Delbert Meier House in Monona and the City National Bank and Hotel in Mason City.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Wright designed a series of Usonian houses in Iowa. Usonian houses are smaller and more affordable than Prairie style houses, and they are designed to be in harmony with the natural landscape. Some of the Usonian houses that Wright designed in Iowa include the Paul and Ida Trier House in Johnston, the Jack Lamberson House in Oskaloosa, and the Lowell and Agnes Walter House in Quasqueton.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
