The Abraham Lincoln Center 700 E. Oakwood Boulevard, Chicago
Frank Lloyd Wright designed this building for his uncle the Reverend Jenkin Lloyd Jones. The building was to contain an auditorium, meeting rooms, offices, a kitchen, living quarters and street level shops. Wright produced designs and models for his uncle. The uncle and Wright quarreled over the design. In 1902 Wright turned the project over to Dwight Perkins and wrote on the blueprints "bldg. completed over protest of architect" The center was opened in 1905.
John Lloyd Wright claims that the original design for this building should be dated 1888, and was his fathers first architectural work.
