A tipster sent in Metro Louisville TV’s new Renovate Louisville segment on the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright in Kentucky. The video (after the jump) features one real Wright house in Frankfort, the state’s only original, and two Wright-inspired designs in Louisville, Triaero, the Irma Bartman Residence by Bruce Goff and the Kaden Tower by Wright’s son-in-law William Wesley Peters and Taliesin Associates. Well worth a watch!
