The Renewing of a Vision
After Steelcase acquired the Meyer May house in 1985, extensive research was done to determine the original design. Bit by bit, the evidence accumulated until Wright’s 1909 vision was revealed. The restoration took two years and included demolition of a 1922 addition plus painstaking, expert attention to hundreds of exterior and interior details. It’s the most completely restored of Wright’s homes.
The guest experience at the Meyer May House starts with a viewing of “Renewing of a Vision” (the videos above) prior to a docent-led tour.
