I love how the film is structured, and I really learned a great deal. I've been in the museum, of course, and I knew that it was a Frank Lloyd Wright design, but I was clueless about the process that created it. I love how the personality of the presenter is part of the story. It's far more than just a staid, historical piece about where the museum came from. Concentrating so much attention on the presenter's journey to understand the museum, as well as his criticisms and objection about the "as-built" design, makes it much more compelling and human. Now I want to go visit again!
There is lots of great writing as well. Some of the things I wrote down were:
"You need a space where everything is subjected to one's sense of movement."
"You have to deal with the museum on its terms."
Comments about the "contextual" installations and the "sociability" of the museum.
One of my favorite parts is the section with the watercolor sketch of the interior and the small video inserts that fade in and out. It really helps the viewer to connect the design process to the reality of inhabiting the completed space.
All in all, great work! Wonderfully shot and a great score to boot!
