Our third edition of the Architecture and Design Films Showcase presents twelve new films that show how design and architecture are crucial to feeding our public imagination.

About

The first feature-length documentary on the designer of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

This documentary on British Ghanaian architect David Adjaye, lead designer of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC, features interviews with his collaborators—a roster of influential figures in the art and cultural world—as well as a significant number of his architectural projects, including public buildings, residential houses, artist studios, and exhibition spaces. (2015, 52 min, digital).

Preceded by The 100 Years Show (dir. Alison Klayman), a portrait of the Cuban American artist Carmen Herrera, tracing her long career, from architecture studies in Cuba to her involvement with the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles in Paris. Herrera has been largely ignored until the last decade, when institutions from New York’s Museum of Modern Art to London’s Tate Modern began acquiring her work and acknowledging it as a precursor to Modernism. (2015, 30 min, digital)
