Episode Summary

The Homes Of Frank Lloyd Wright
From Fallingwater to the Guggenheim Museum, Frank Lloyd Wright created some of the most celebrated designs in history. His development as an architect, however, is best seen in the three homes he built for himself. Freed from the wishes and demands of any client, they are the purest expressions of the talents and theories of the greatest architect of the 20th century. America's Castles follows the evolution of Wright's style from the balanced simplicity of Oak Park (1891) to the destruction of the traditional boundaries between inside and outside space of Taliesin West (1937). Go inside Taliesin (1911) in Spring Green Wisconsin, which is off limits to the public, to see what many scholars feel is the most beautiful of all Wright's domestic designs. Also learn of the turmoil and tragedy that marked Wright's private life, including the horrific axe murder in Taliesin.moreless
