Two films on architecture, sponsored by Space.City.
Albert Frey: The Architectural Envoy – Part 1 (2018) explores the architect’s formative years while working closely with Le Corbusier in Europe. It also shows his important transition to America, where he produced work including the famed Aluminaire House, the Canvas Weekend House, the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), and the Kocher-Samson Building in Palm Springs. Ultimately, the film reveals why Frey was such a significant force in the development of modernism in the United States.
Mies on Scene. Barcelona in two acts (2018)
The Barcelona Pavilion, the masterpiece with which Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich staged their revolutionary ideas in 1929, changed the History of architecture forever. It only existed for eight months but paradoxically its image was always alive in the minds of generations of architects around the world, becoming one of their greatest influences. Spain 59 min.
