This residence, called the "Airplane House," illustrates the essence of the Prairie School style of architecture. The strong feeling of horizontally is given by sweeping eaves; banded, leaded casement windows; horizontal wood trim; and site placement. Wright, the most outspoken of the Prairie architects, designed this house for attorney Eugene A. Gilmore at a time when prevailing architectural forms were derived from historical styles.
