Prairie style

The Prairie School or Prairie Style is an architectural trend that became widespread in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, mainly in the western United States. It uses horizontal lines, flat roofs and wide projecting cornices. Although Louis Sullivan is considered the founder of the movement, the most famous representative is Frank Lloyd Wright. Lloyd's main goal was to design buildings to suit the landscape. The immensity of the steppes led buildings to be designed horizontally rather than vertically. Even buildings above two stories are built close to the ground. Under the influence of minimalism, Lloyd brought conciseness and straightforwardness to the buildings. Such houses seem to be assembled from separate "boxes". Wide terraces are important attributes of this style. The interior layout has a small number of rooms, thanks to which the area remains spacious. Wide panoramic windows are installed. Shades of browns and grays predominate.
