Architecture travel fantasy in Illinois

I am a bit of an architecture geek. No, I’d never try creating anything, but I do admire the work of others – and have been known to go out of my way when traveling to see the latest and greatest, and old and historic.

So I think it’s super cool that the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust is again serving up its Architecture Fantasy Camp in 2010

The camp program takes place at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in the very drafting room where the master worked in Oak Park, Ill., with a program very much designed for non-architects. Dates are March 5-8; June 13-16; August 1-4 and October 3-6, 2010.

As part of the program, which BTW I think would make an excellent holiday gift for any Wright fan, participants work with accomplished architects to plan and design a structure of their own creation.

You can create a new addition to your home, remodel your kitchen, or design a dream house (even if it’s a fantasy house). You also, as an attendee, enjoy tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio, Wright’s world-renowned Unity Temple and a special behind-the-scenes tour of Wright’s Robie House in Chicago.

The program is priced at $900 ($850 for Trust members). You are on your own for accommodations and meals – one place to stay in Oak Park is The Carleton. Chicago is only 10 miles away, so you can also commute from there.
