Product Description:

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S HOME AND STUDIO casts a light on the world-famous architect's early life and career. When Wright was just 22 years old, he used a loan to build an impressive construction that reflected his own philosophy of nature and beauty. His Home and Studio in Oak Park, Illinois, would be the first of many projects in Wright's career to serve as both an experimental workspace and a home for his family. This documentary features extended interviews, floor plans, and an interactive tour that includes virtual panoramas and over 150 beautiful photographs.

Product Description:

Disc 1: A 60 minute documentary film. Beauty, Wright believed, stands paramount among all aspects of life. He sought it in everything from music, poetry, and sculpture, to his own environments. He conceived "organic architecture" - an innovative philosophy of building appropriate to time, appropriate to place, and appropriate to man- as a basis for creating beauty in his life and the lives of his clients. Wright Embarked on this approach with the first residence and workplace he designed for himself: the Home and Studio in Oak Park, a suburb of Chicago. For two decades, it served not only as his own family residence but an experimental laboratory where he envisioned and tested many of the basic principles that he would develop throughout his career, principles now synonymous with organic architecture. The Home and Studio represents a critical link in fully appreciating Wright's body of work.
Disc 2: The Interactive Tour presents a comprehensive documentation of the Home and Studio. It brings together a wide-ranging collection of contemporary photographs, 360-degree virtual reality panoramas, and floor plans, to create a virtual experience of the entire building. Also includes 28 minutes of extended interviews and a slide show of 160 color photographs.
