That Far Corner: Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angeles–A Free Online Documentary




From KCET (the public broadcaster serving SoCal) comes the documentary, That Far Corner: Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angeles. “During his time spent in Southern California in the late 1910s and early 1920s, Frank Lloyd Wright accelerated the search for L.A.’s authentic architecture that was suitable to the city’s culture and landscape. Writer/Director Chris Hawthorne, architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times, explores the houses the legendary architect built in Los Angeles. The documentary also delves into the critic’s provocative theory that these homes were also a means of artistic catharsis for Wright, who was recovering from a violent tragic episode in his life.” You can watch That Far Corner online. It will also be added to our list of Free Documentaries, a subset of collection 4,000+ Free Movies Online: Great Classics, Indies, Noir, Westerns, Documentaries & More.

    Outstanding, thoughtful and well produced look at FLW’s LA period. Here in Wisconsin he is so strongly associated with the prairie school, rightly revered; a critique of his other periods is a welcome broadening of perspective. I built my own modest home with the prairie influenced goals of bringing the outside in and sitting lightly on the land. How interesting to see organic architecture flipped to create such mammoth and foreboding fortresses.
