Discovery: Frank Lloyd Wright

About This Item

Please note: This 'kinescope' recording was originally made in 1953 by filming the picture from a live video monitor. The picture quality - especially sharpness - is much lower than the rest of our footage produced on 16mm film. KPIX-TV and the San Francisco Museum of Art present an episode in the 'Discovery' series about the philosophy and work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). Wright is interviewed in the studio by Dr Lloyd Luckmann and discusses: the influence of Louis Sullivan (skyscrapers); 'organic' architecture; what distinguishes his own work; his VC Morris Building on San Francisco's Maiden Lane and the responsibility of modern architects: "I don't think that architects have lived up to their duty. As well as their privilege." Also includes a message from Virginia Arnold about how the San Francisco Museum of Art has changed and scenes of Wright explaining the design of his Butterfly Wing Bridge to Luckmann, which is being proposed as another span across San Francisco Bay (it was never built).
