His "small integrated universe" is shown by examples of his best-known buildings: Falling Water--a place where man and nature interlock, The Dana House--a perfectly preserved masterpiece of prairie architecture, Unity Temple--a structure where walls seem to disappear, and Taliesen--one of Wright's best-known and most beautiful creations. Includes interviews with his widow and many people who were a part of his life provide an account of his ardent supporters and vehement critics.
