There’s No House In The World Like This One In Oklahoma

In 1961, architect Herb Greene built the Prairie Chicken House for himself and his family in Norman, Oklahoma. Greene’s Prairie House caused an international sensation when it was published in color in Life and Look magazines, The London Time Journals, and journals throughout Europe and Japan. The house quickly became a symbol of organic modernism. There are 2100 square feet of living area, a granite paved ramp and entry, carport, and a screened porch to stand on the roof 25 feet above ground.

Thank you to the Herb Greene Foundation for the photos featured in this article. Have you ever seen the Chicken Prairie House?
