The essence of design lies in its profound ability to affect how we think about and experience the world. This is a film series about architecture and design that will engage, provoke and inspire the community by exploring the impact and importance of design and beauty in our lives. We invite you to join us for thoughtful discussion and light refreshments in hopes that this creative gathering will broaden awareness, foster connections, spark new ideas, and ultimately build momentum towards positive action.

COAST MODERN
by Mike Bernard and Gaviin Froome 2012
USA, 55 minutes

Traveling along the Pacific North West coastline from LA to Vancouver, this relaxed journey takes us across three generations of Modernist architecture, all taking us back to the basics of true living – a sense of place, light, and a deep connection to the earth. Dion Neutra tells us that the way to live is to have ‘the comfort of being inside, yet you have the feeling of being outside’, and it is this established principle that contemporary Modernist architects are emulating and evolving today.

An emotionally rich portrait of war’s troubled aftermath, Belvedere paints an uncommon image of patience, faith, love, and above all, forgiveness.
