Image details

Upon its com­ple­tion in 1938, the Schweikher House was a sim­ple and mod­est assem­blage of 2400 sq ft. In essence it is a three-room open plan struc­ture with beau­ti­ful spaces for liv­ing, sleep­ing and working. Located on a farm field on the rural edge of Chicago’s urban energy, the house staked its own dis­tinc­tive posi­tion in the world of Prairie School evo­lu­tion, inter­na­tional mod­ernism, and Wright’s yet-to-be-defined/built Uson­ian invention.

The Schweikher House Preservation Trust, in collaboration with Docomomo US, invites you to enjoy a casual evening at the Schweikher House. We'll open the doors for an informal social gathering with light food and wine followed by a relaxed tour. Experience the house and studio as if you were invited over by the Schweikhers or Langsdorfs. See the property and grounds in twilight, an experience rarely open to the public.
