Join us for Albert Frey: The Architectural Interpreter – Part II, as season 10 of The Architecture + Design Film Series continues. In 1939, Swiss-born Corbusian architectural envoy Albert Frey embarked on a decades-long journey of discovery in this second film of a two-part series. His world travels and love of nature would lead him to carve out a new style of modernism, leaving its indelible mark on the desert community of Palm Springs, California. Often set in wild, savage, natural settings, his buildings have a sense of peace and become places where it is possible to genuinely live a perfectly balanced life reconnected with nature. With never-before-seen archival films, photographs, and interviews, this film reveals the mystique of an influential architectural master.
