Prairie StyleStreaming Video - 2006
Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie Style, with its floating horizontal planes and organic relationship to natural surroundings, changed the face of modern architecture. In this program, Wright's lasting legacy is examined both in one of his own designs and in those of two architects he inspired. Cameras tour Wright's 1904 Tomak House in Illinois, Dan White's house in Vancouver, and the Donald Fraser residence in Ontario. Architectural historian Hal Kalman and architects Barry Hobin and Dan White discuss the innovations and details of these groundbreaking homes.
