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.

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.
