Earlier this week, we played Mystery Madisonian with you guys + asked you to play along at home. Many of you guessed correctly, our mystery Madisonian was Frank Lloyd Wright.

Living in Madison, many of our readers are well aware of Frank and his architectural endeavors. A couple of our favorite spots include the Lamp House and the Monona Terrace.

Frank Lloyd Wright is one of the most famous American architects in history and is partially responsible for Prairie Style architecture which boasts an emphasis on nature, craftsmanship, and simplicity. Frank was born in Richland Center, Wisconsin + spent time in Madison for high school and college.
