During Wright’s 20 years in Oak Park, he designed a whole heap of houses. Moore House is particularly noteworthy. First built in 1895, it’s Wright’s bizarre interpretation of an English manor house. In his later years, Wright called the house ‘repugnant’ and said he had only taken the commission because he needed the money. He claimed that he walked out of his way to avoid passing it.
