Frank Lloyd Wright: The Man Who Built America - BBC One Wales & BBC Four
Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s greatest
ever architect. In a career spanning seven decades, he build over five hundred
buildings, and changed the face of modern architecture. Fallingwater, the house
over the waterfall has been called the greatest house of the twentieth century.
The spiralling Guggenheim museum in New York reinvented the art museum. But
what is the underlying philosophy that links all Wright’s buildings, and where
did it come from? Leading Welsh architect Johnathan Adams sets off across
America to explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces for himself. Along the
way, he uncovers the story of the man behind them, and his radical Welsh roots.
