Summary
A two part documentary portrait of the life and work of architecture giant Frank Lloyd Wright, a brilliant, arrogant figure unbowed by scandal and personal tragedy. Part 1 reviews his early personal life and the beginning of his career. Also presents Wright's early architectural creations in the terraced "prairie houses" built in suburban Chicago in the early 1900s, the Larkin Building in New York, the Unity Temple in Oak Park, Ill., Taliesin East in Wisconsin and the Imperial Hotel in Japan
