This is a good documentary about important British architect Richard Rogers. In it he talks of coming to the USA to study at Yale (starting around 9:50) which leads to his crediting the work of FLW as the main influence on him and fellow student Norman Foster.
Starting around 11:10 is vintage video footage of Wright buildings they visited in the 50's.

I enjoyed that. For one thing, it cleared up for me the relationship between Rogers, Foster, and Piano. And of course it's a great tutorial on the uses of urban space . . .

This astounding building was news to me. It was good, too, to get an extensive look at the Lloyd's building on Leadenhall St . . .

Check out the plan of the 'Cheese Grater' in London - could come straight out of the early work.

I like the way that the hi-tech constructivism of the firm's work was described in terms of being understandable, or legible: "You can look at it and
understand how it's gone together." The more recent buildings, some of them, are remarkably warm and woody, or organically fluid, such as the
roofs and ceilings of several of the civic buildings and airports.
