That Far Corner: Frank Lloyd Wright In Los Angeles
This documentary explores the intricacies of his personal life in some detail and focuses on the departure of FLW’s prairie styled homes to adopting Mayan architectural influences for his Los Angeles projects
During his time spent in Southern California in the late 1910s and early 1920s, Frank Lloyd Wright accelerated the search for an authentic L. A. architecture that was suitable to the city’s culture and landscape. Writer/Director Christopher Hawthorne, architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times, explores the houses the legendary architect built in Los Angeles. The documentary also delves into the critic’s provocative theory that these homes were also a means of artistic catharsis for Wright, who was recovering from a violent tragic episode in his life.
