Frank Lloyd Wright added a studio to his Oak Park home in 1898. Here he experimented with light and form, and conceived the concepts of Prairie architecture. Many of his early interior architectural designs were realized here. At the business entrance, columns are decked with symbolic designs. According to the official guidebook for the Frank Lloyd Wright House and Studio:
"The book of knowledge issues from the tree of life, a symbol of natural growth. A scroll of architectural plans unrolls from it. On either side are sentry storks, perhaps symbols of wisdom and fertility."

Guided tours of the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio are offered daily by the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust.
