An American Home

Project Status: 
In Progress

Frank Lloyd Wright, the 20th Century’s most famous architect, redefined American Architecture when he designed the B. Harley Bradley House in Kankakee, Illinois. This single family home represents Wright’s first complete foray into the “Prairie Style.” Wright had toyed Prairie elements, but the Bradley House marked the first instance where these innovative concepts were combined into a single property.

The half-hour documentary film, An American Home, will concurrently tell the story of Frank Lloyd Wright, the brash, fast-talking architectural genius, and that of the Bradley House, which has weathered years of changes and neglect before complete restoration. Historians and design experts will speak to the legacy of Wright, the house, and the architectural movement that it began.
