The Sacred Spaces of Frank Lloyd Wright


You don’t have to be religious to appreciate that the architecture of churches prestents opportunities few other typologies do to show fundamentals in stone.

The ideas embodied may be stone-age, but they are a search for  what can be done with stone to express them can be glorious. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that the best spaces to be in – like  the best architectural space in New Zealand  -- can be a church or chapel.

And when these sacred spaces are designed by a genius whose religion puts “man in possession of this earth,” who says “I put a capital ‘n’ on Nature and call it my church,” then you’re truly up for something special.

So I’m looking forward to seeing how the film shapes up for which this is the trailer, rentable online for just a few dollars …
