Broadacre City

Broadacre City was an urban model created and exhibited by Frank Lloyd Wright from 1932-1958 as a new form of urban planning that challenged centralized planning in the early 1920s to move out from urban center of cities and live out into the countryside, close to nature. While it was considered as “urban sprawl,” the film explores the misconceptions and misunderstandings of Broadacre City via interviews with associates of Frank Lloyd Wright who worked on it and gave personal accounts what Broadacre City symbolizes.
