Architects on film
I grew up in America's most satanic contribution to modern architecture: a trailer. View image (Yes, I'll admit it, I'm trailer trash!)
Any interest or taste I now possess for architecture is a direct result of Jay's influence. Today's JayDay feature alerts you to the fact that there are currently two independent films about architects playing in theatres now.
""My Architect" is a documentary about Nathaniel's Kahn's quest to discover the hidden life of his father, the architect Louis I. Kahn, who, when he died in a men's room at Penn Station in 1974, left behind many beautiful buildings (such as the Bangladesh National Assembly (above) and, it was learned later, several illegitimate children.
"A House on a Hill" is a fictional drama about an architect, Harry Mayfield (played by Philip Baker Hall), who is asked to develop a house on the site of what was to have been Harry's own dream home, which he lost in a tragic fire that also claimed the life of this son.
