  • STATE FORESTS AND ARBORETUMS: FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT GINKGO

    The Frank Lloyd Wright Ginkgo stands in front of the home the pioneering architect built for himself on Forest Avenue in Oak Park, Illinois. Wright lived in the house for 20 years, during which time his ideas about architecture evolved.

    Wright Ginkgo 
    Wright and his colleagues broke from traditional architectural styles and developed the Prairie Style, characterized by horizontal lines and overhanging roofs. The structures he designed changed the course of 20th Century Architecture.

     
    The Frank Lloyd Wright Ginkgo stands as a reminder of the natural beauty incorporated into the architect's designs. The tree at the Ruth Bowling Nichols arboretum grew out of a cutting from the Frank Lloyd Wright Ginkgo in Illinois.
