IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE ARE MANY MANSIONS
Eleven high points of American domestic architecture are illustrated in this paneled documentary. Beginning with our native people’s teepees, the quilt includes renderings of the New England central hearth farmhouse, Jefferson’s ebullient Monticello, and a nineteenth-century New York rowhouse and continues into the modern era with a tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Willetts House. If America, as some have called it, is “God’s country,” then all of us live in mansions, no matter how humble.
