It’s an interesting and somehow fitting twist that this site, devoted to the idea that the Prairie School exists beyond a few iconic buildings, received its first widespread notice in Florida, a place few casual architecture buffs would associate with the style of Wright, Griffin and others. The Sunshine State is home to dozens of Prairie buildings, many designed by Henry John Klutho in Jacksonville. Due to the incredible efforts of Wayne Wood, this heritage is available for your pleasure and edification in the Florida pages of this site. Wayne’s efforts extended to local publicity, with the result that the Florida Times-Union ran the featurette above. This in turn resulted in a ten-fold increase in visitors to this site in the past week.
As always, I welcome your comments about this site or any Prairie School building.
