Event description

Description

TOURS AVAILABLE AT 2 PM ON THE 3rd SATURDAY OF THE MONTH FROM MAY THROUGH OCTOBER, EXCLUDING AUGUST. THE AUGUST TOUR WILL BE ON 8/12/17.

Aimed at Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiasts, designers, and people with technical/architectural backgrounds or interests, this tour is an expanded version of our regular Affleck House tour, with an opportunity afterward to engage in more discussion with our docents about Frank Lloyd Wright, Usonian design and architecture in general.

The first Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house to be built in the Detroit metropolitan area, the Gregor S. & Elizabeth B. Affleck House represents one of the finest examples of the architect’s Usonian style, the last great period of Wright’s career. Designed to exist in harmony with the home’s site and nature, the Affleck House was a part of Wright’s attempt to meet the need for low-cost housing for the average American.

Adult ticket cost is $25.00. Child and Student ticket cost is $15.00. Ticket sales will end 3 days prior to the tour date.

Due to the historical status and intimate nature of the house, many rooms and passageways are very narrow and therefore the house is not wheelchair accessible. Limited photography, for personal use only, is permitted. In consideration of our other guests, only handheld cameras, with no tripods or flash, are allowed.

Please note: Low-heeled, comfortable shoes are recommended. This tour will involve walking and can include both paved and unpaved terrain. The event will be offered rain or shine, please dress for the weather.

Group Tours are available for groups of 12 or larger. Please contact Tami Stanko, Administrative Assistant, College of Architecture and Design at Lawrence Technological University for further information. tstanko@ltu.edu; 248.204.2800.
