Well known for his architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright designed more than 4,000 stained glass pieces for more than 150 of his buildings. He referred to the windows as "light screens" because they interacted with the view behind them rather than covering or obscuring it, as stained glass windows often did.
As he designed a building, Wright often sought to balance solid walls with light screens, which he felt opened a room and blended it with the surrounding environment. This is a key idea in what is known as the "Prairie" style.
Wright's designs featured geometric patterns that abstracted natural elements such as plants, waterfalls, and rivers. He used mostly clear or neutral-colored glass with accents of color and iridescence.
In this lesson plan, students use geometry skills and repeating patterns to create a stained glass design incorporating the ideals of Prairie-Style architecture. Then they make a window cling using lightfast permanent markers.
