Synopsis by Karla Baker

Originally aired on A&E as part of their America's Castles series, this video takes a guided tour through the homes of the renowned architect, Frank Lloyd Wright. Archival films and photographs are used to describe Wright's childhood homes along with the three homes he went on to build for himself: his home and studio in Illinios, Taliesin in Wisconsin, and Taliesin West in Arizona. Wright scholars act as commentators by placing the homes into their historical and biographical context. The homes are shown room by room giving viewers a chance to appreciate the designs which strove to eliminate the insignificant. This video is approximately 50 minutes long.
