The Great Architect Of Home

Susan Marling spotlights architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his influence on house design.

Wright broke the mould of 19th century home design in favour of a style that was light, airy, open plan and in sympathy with nature - it still appears modern 50 years after his death.

Susan visits the famous Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, a house with a sculptural series of wide floors cantilevered out over a stream in the countryside.

She also goes to Taliesin West in Arizona, home to Wright's studio and Foundation.
