The Wright Way of Building

January 18, 2012

A designer ahead of his time, Frank Lloyd Wright left his mark across the valley. Even after his death he continues to be a prominent figure in the architecture and city planning that shapes Arizona.

Wright’s former apprentice Vern Swaback gives his take on the architect, and how Wright regarded nature as the great teacher. Swaback says this led to unique architecture and design in Arizona that Wright had never used any place else. Director of the Phoenix Art Museum Jim Ballinger explains why Wright continues to be important, especially in the age of organic and green architecture.
