Frank Lloyd Wright has long been regarded as America’s greatest architect. Famous for such works as the Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater, Wright designed over 1,000 buildings during his 70-year career.Sacred Spaces examines his brilliant, but less well-known, houses of worship.
Featuring the classical music that Wright most admired, this fascinating documentary showcases all ten religious structures that were created for a wide range of faiths. Wright’s uniquely American designs were hugely influential in the field of engineering, and groundbreaking in the way they incorporated natural surroundings. Perhaps the greatest testament to Wright’s impact is the fact that active congregations still use each of these structures today.
These magnificent Sacred Spaces transcend religious boundaries and demonstrate not only Wright’s genius but also his devotion to nature, which he said, “is all the body of God we are ever going to see.”
