This video examines the long and tumultuous life of one of America's greatest architects, Frank Lloyd Wright. Born in Wisconsin in 1869, Wright revolutionized architecture, with his designs echoing natural forms. While he designed a number of large structures, his main focus was in designing houses for individual families in everyday life in suburbia. Three types of buildings are the focus of the video: two duplex-style residences, the Johnson Wax building, and the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church. Each edifice embodies Wright's philosophy of architecture. Many of his most famous designs are shown, along with archival footage of the architect at work. Also included is a volume entitled "Partner to Genius," which features the life of Wright's wife, the enigmatic Olgivanna Lloyd Wright.
