Watch Architect Frank Lloyd Wright Discuss How Arrogance and Greed Literally Built New York City

The team at Blank on Blank recently uncovered a 1957audio interview with iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright in which he discusses how arrogance and greed built the NYC skyline, then turned the audio into a great animated short.

As part of our special series, The Experimenters, where we’re uncovering interviews with the icons of science, technology, and innovation, we found this 1957 interview with Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s part of a collection at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin celebrating The Mike Wallace Interview, a TV program that ran back in the late ‘50s. Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs and style seem very nice, very clean now, but at the time, he was a controversial personality. And like most famous architects, his work was as much hated as respected. And that’s what Mike Wallace wanted to talk about.
