Frank Lloyd Wright - A Film by Ken Burns

Frank Lloyd Wright: A Film by Ken Burns & Lynn Novick

Frank Lloyd Wright was an authentic American genius, a man who believed he was destined to redesign the world, creating everything anew. Over the course of his long career, he designed over eight hundred buildings, including such revolutionary structures as Unity Temple, the Fredrick C. Robie House, the Johnson Wax Building, Fallingwater, and the Guggenheim Museum. His buildings and his ideas changed the way we live, work and see the world around us.

Encompassing the origins of Frank Lloyd Wright’s career in the Chicago area through the creation of his magnificent Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, Ken Burn’s masterful film beautifully captures the story of America’s greatest architect.

The program will be introduced by Frank Lloyd Wright Trust Curator, David Bagnall.
