Michael Miner returns to Iowa with his third documentary entitled “Romanza: The Structures of California Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright”. This film documents unprecedented access to every California Wright building, "Romanza" journeys all over the state, from the Los Angeles textile block houses famous for their appearances in dozens of Hollywood films, to Wright's only San Francisco commission, a building which he designed as a "glass of champagne", from the cinder block homes of the San Joaquin valley, to the "Ship's prow" home on the beach of Carmel bay, from Wright's contentious relationship with oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, to perhaps the most charming of all Frank Lloyd Wright stories, the design for a doghouse in response to a 12 year olds letter. We visit all 25 buildings, including the 3 California "legacy" projects, built long after Wright's death. Also included is substantial material on Wright's unbuilt California work, some of the most fantastically imaginative structures he ever designed. Michael will give an introduction of the film and there will also be time after the film for discussion and a question and answer session.
By attending this event participants will be able to…
• assess the use of textile and cinder blocks in residential architecture;
• identify the twenty-five buildings that Frank Lloyd Wright designed in California;
• describe in detail the architecture found in California designed by Frank Lloyd Wright;
• evaluate the three California ‘legacy’ projects, built long after Wright’s death; and examine architecture as an art form.
