Was Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural vision sustainable?

46 ratings | 1503 views
In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at Frank Lloyd Wright's buildings through his sustainable and green architecture in his designs for Fallingwater and Usonian homes. Specifically, I dig into his ideas of organic architecture, Usonia, and Broadacre City, and look at buildings like Fallingwater in order to come to grips with the balance Frank Lloyd Wright strikes between a love for nature (and green living) and a desire for embracing new technologies.

What do you guys think about FLW's architectural style? Do you feel like his architectural vision would hold up to our current standards for sustainable building practices?

Nice video essay but it's kinda silly to talk about CO2 emissions and the unsustainability of cars in the context of the 1920s and 1930s. Wright was certainly a guy who valued nature and community and the local, values highly associated with modern sustainable movement and culture.

More pseudo science straight from the apostles. They'll keep propagandizing it until you believe, unless you can be a healthy skeptic.
