It was Hyde Park (as it was defined then) that brought Wright to Chicago to pursue his passion for architecture. It introduced him to his first wife and gave him clients who believed in him (and one who didn’t) as he built the MacArthur, Blossom, and Harlow Houses, the Abraham Lincoln Center, Heller and Robie Houses, and the Midway Gardens. Hyde Park was where he embarked on his greatest love and learned of his greatest tragedy.
