Summary Three programs that collectively present the milestones of American architecture and city planning. 10 homes that changed America takes the viewer to a 600-year-old Native American dwelling, Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, a Gothic castle in New York, Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, and an early public housing project. 10 parks that changed America looks at public squares in Savannah, Georgia, a park-like cemetery near Boston, the San Antonio River Walk, a park built over a freeway in Seattle, a toxic waste site that was transformed into a park, and New York's Central Park and High Line. 10 towns that changed America examines a Spanish colonial town in Florida, William Penn's vision for Philadelphia, the Mormon plan for Salt Lake City, a failed company town near Chicago, urban renewal in Washington, D.C., and the latest ideas about city planning in Portland, Oregon.
