Picture 5 It was an amazing weekend spent in Milwaukee for the 2011 Wright & Like event. Even though the weather was a bit on the chilly side, it didn't dampen the enthusiasm for seeing all of the fantastic architecture. If you missed the event, then here's a peek at some of the sites captured by some of our PrairieMod pals. More after the jump...

There were thirteen houses on the roster this year (fourteen, if you count a very special chance to see the Albert Adelman house), so it was quite a whirlwind tour to try and see them all. What follows is a look at some of the houses we saw:

Mr. Adelman regailed us with the story of how he came to meet Frank Lloyd Wright and the ins-and-outs involved with getting the home designed and then subsequently built to Wright's satisfaction and within budget. It was truly a very special way to cap-off a most memerable event.

If you missed this year's Wright & Like tour, then make sure you sign-up for email news and become members of the Wright in Wisconsin organization to be alterted for details of the 2012 event. As soon as we know where it will take place, we'll be sure to let readers know! Special thanks to Scott T. and Paul R. for providing additional photos.
