Sunday, May 12 at 10:00 p.m.

The home of Henry Ford's first assembly line, an airport with a swooping concrete roof that seems to float on air  — these are among the buildings surveyed in this cross-country journey to 10 influential works of American architecture.

Meet the daring architects who imagined them and learn the shocking, funny and even sad stories of how they came to be. They changed the way we live, work, worship, learn, shop and play. Geoffrey Baer hosts.
