Avery Coonley Estate: Riverside, Illinois

Frank Lloyd Wright added more than 30 stained-glass windows to the playhouse of the Avery Coonley Estate in a suburb of Chicago, which he designed in 1907. Each was slightly different and all were geometric, featuring bright primary colors. That was a departure from Wright's earlier designs, which were primarily based in nature. These designs could have been inspired by a parade with the colored glass simulating balloons, flags and confetti.
