Join Design Onscreen for the world premiere of William Krisel, Architect on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2010 at the Camelot Theater in Palm Springs, CA, as part of Palm Springs Modernism Week. This visually stunning film explores the prolific career of Architect William Krisel.
Over the course of his sixty-year career, Architect William Krisel has brought modernism to the masses, designing more than 40,000 individual housing units across the U.S. Krisel’s influential work has become synonymous with mid-20th century Southern Californian design. The documentary explores his life and work, including his roots in 1930s China, his ground-breaking designs for modern living, and interviews with scholars, his contemporaries and family. “I’m a firm believer that good modern design can make your life happier, more productive and more enjoyable,” says Krisel. William Krisel, Architect is presented by Design Onscreen, a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to producing, preserving and promoting high-quality films on architecture and design.
