On March 23, forty-seven Architecture I & II students, from Ms. Williams' junior high classes visited Frank Lloyd Wright's Wingspread in Racine, Wisconsin.  

They viewed a film about the (now adult) children that lived in the house which was built for H.F. Johnson and his family in 1938-39.  They were also able to explore the home after learning about the history of the house from the docent.  Wingspread was the last of Wright's Prairie Houses and his largest single-family residence.  The Johnson family lived there from 1939-1959.  Today the 14,000 square foot building is an international educational conference facility.
