Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home & Studio
IN-D presents a Planet Architecture series production

Charting the course of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, this film focuses on his ever changing home and studio in Oak Park, Chicago and how it reflects the architectural innovations of his career from Taliesin to the Guggenheim. It provides a more personal look at Wright by examining how he created his own living and workspaces. Wright’s expression of ideas in architecture is covered including the importance he placed on family, nature, beauty and culture, music and surrounding oneself with these things. With this detailed presentation the argument is made that all of the elements for understanding any of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural feats can be found by studying his home and studio.
