From Masterpieces – The Most Extraordinary Buildings Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
By around 1900, Frank Lloyd Wright was completing the final designs for the buildings which would later become known as his “Oak Park” period.
He now focused on a new building style “The Prairie School,” structures whose horizontal profiles were to fit naturally into the flat terrain of the midwestern prairie.
One of the earliest examples of a Wright Prairie School building, and certainly the grandest, was the house he designed for wealthy Springfield, Illinois socialite Susan Lawrence Dana in 1902. It was 12,000 square feet in size, extraordinarily opulent, and featured the largest collection of custom designed furniture and art glass ever found within a single Wright structure. After a meticulous restoration, and the re-acquisition of virtually all of its original artifacts, the magnificent Dana House can now be rightly called “The Masterpiece of the Prairie School era.”
This DVD version contains a bonus section featuring a treasure trove of additional footage for the passionate Wright fan, deleted scenes, and extended interviews.
