Iconic architecture

Prairie School

Architectural icons including Walter Burley Griffin, Louis H. Sullivan, and Frank Lloyd Wright are known as three of the most iconic architects across the world and made a large impact on Iowa. The Arts and Craft movement spread across the Midwest in the early 1900's and Iowa was gifted with many works from these famous architects. Several of these buildings are still standing today. We invite you to view their work here and encourage you to visit these buildings to see the beauty for yourself.
