What is the secret of possibly America’s greatest ever architects?

It is not the first documentary about Frank Lloyd Wright and certainly not the last film about the man most people regard as America’s greatest ever architect. Sixty years after his death, Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs such as the Guggenheim Museum in New York, administrative buildings Johnson Wax and the Fallingwater house in Pennsylvania represent the turning-points of American architecture. The Welsh architect Jonathan Adams sets off across America to explore Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpieces for himself. Along the way, he uncovers the tempestuous life story of the man behind them and the secrets of his radical Welsh background.
