Video: Watch This Charming Frank Lloyd Wright Animated Interview

In 1957, the renowned Chicago architect Frank Lloyd Wright, then 90 years old, sat down for a recorded interview with Mike Wallace. PBS Digital Studios has taken excerpts from that interview and set them to a new animation for their series Blank On Blank.

Wright was a man with strong opinion, and the short video is filled with observational gems, some of which are obviously meant to ruffle the feathers of his contemporaries. Sit back and listen to the man talk about his philosophy and approach to architecture in his own words.
