What people are saying:

Came to Chicago mainly for Wright. Special trip to see Robie House but closed. First sight felt smaller than expected. Composing proportion is perfect. Through the glass window, the layer is too small, the space is a bit depressing. The entrance is less than 2 meters high. Maybe that's the price of pursuing the perfect ratio. It would be even better if the whole was increased by 1.2~1.5 times. Some say Wright's 1.5 meters height is the main reason for its design.
