The Frank Lloyd Wright designed Reasearch Tower Tour

Frank Tour

We took the bus from Chicago for a Tour to visit SC Johnson’s headquarters in Wisconsin.

The bus ride is free and SC Johnson buildings are open to the public! It’s a great way to enjoy one of the most inspiring place in Wisconsin when you don’t know what to do on Sunday.

The journey was divided in 3 stops:


We first stop by a famous Danish bakery, where you can choose between 15 differents Kringle. Imagine that they are selling $10 for a Kringle and they were saying that they can sell 5,000 in a day!

Then, we head to the SC Johnson headquarters. This corporate reaseach building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright opens to the public in Racine, WI. This unique building shows one of Wright’s central design goals: to create an inspiring and practicla place to work.

The Johnosons liked the business buildings Wright designed so much that they commissioned a family house, as well. Completed in 1939, Wright dubbed it « Wingspread ».





Over to you, are you a big fan of Wright design?
