10pm - 10 BUILDINGS THAT CHANGED AMERICA - Documentary 

10 Buildings that Changed America presents 10 trend-setting works of architecture that have shaped and inspired our American landscape.

 

These aren’t just historic structures by famous architects. These buildings have dramatically influenced our built environment in many ways – and in one case, for over two centuries.

From the state capitol building that first declared our architectural independence from Great Britain, to an iconic Prairie-style home by Frank Lloyd Wright. From the factory that housed Henry Ford’s first Model T moving assembly line, to the original indoor regional shopping mall. From H.H. Richardson’s iconic Trinity Church in Boston, to Frank Gehry’s game-changing Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. These 10 buildings helped make America the place it is today.
