Originated by Frank Lloyd Wright

Horizontal lines - everything about a prairie home is horizontally oriented.

Simple materials - uses natural stains to let the character of wood show through.

Cantilevered, flat roofs - long, horizontal roofs on prairie houses had a large, straight overhang, sometimes up to four feet.

Rows of windows - often features several windows in a row, placed together for the appearance of a glass wall.Organic patterns - Prairie windows often had window mullions, or dividers, with geometric patternsSlide45

Minimal ornamentationGood quality construction using natural materialsAttached garagesNew design elements such as sliding glass doors, large plate glass picture windows, and Formica countertopsSlide52
