This documentary explores the work of the region’s best post-war architects, including Albert Frey, Wallace Harrison, Frank Lloyd Wright, Horace Gifford, Marcel Breuer, Andrew Geller, Charles Gwathmey, Barbara and Julian Neski, and others. Featuring interviews with architects and historians, as well as friends, families and clients of these influential designers, the film shows that these modernists’ best work is often under threat.
