Description
Program Description
"Uncommon Places: The Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright traces the life of America's most famous architect. Wright was born in Wisconsin in the late 1860s and created some of his most famous buildings in his native state. The summers he spent on his family's farm in southwestern Wisconsin had a profound influence on the young man who eventually journeyed to Chicago to begin his architectural practice. Uncommon Places captures the essence of Wright's work and his controversial career. The film includes photography of some of Wright's most well known structures as well as interviews with many of the people who new Wright best, including an interview with Wright's widow, Olgivanna. "Uncommon Places was produced by WHA-TV and the Wisconsin Educational Television Network. It has also aired on public stations across the country. The Christian Science Monitor reviewed the film and referred to it as 'One of the year's most extraordinary documentaries.'"--1985 Peabody Awards entry form.
