A short history
Prairie Style is said to be the first original American architectural style. Houses at the time were described as "bungalows of the Middle-Western type." Its salient characteristics include strong horizontal lines and natural interaction with its landscape. The best examples embody the sensitivity to the surrounding environment that makes it appear that the structure is a natural part of the scenery. Part of this is achieved by using natural, indigenous materials. (Though not Prairie per se, Wright's Falling Water embodies that ideal.)
Though the exterior character was remarkable, it was the radical interior reorganization that set the Prairie Style apart. Instead of the Victorian plan with its small, compartmentalized rooms, this modern innovation opened up interior spaces by creating a more natural flow between rooms. In even relatively small houses, spaciousness was achieved by removing doors and walls and increasing the line of sight from room to room. In Wright's words, designs should be "trimmed to the last ounce of the superfluous." (LHJ, April 1907)
Prairie Style also incorporated the natural environment by providing easier access to porches and patios. The use of many windows allowed ample light and cross-ventilation, which were coming to be considered essential to health and well-being.
