Talking House: Eileen Gray & Jean Badovici  
Directed by Elizabeth Lennard 
2016 / 44 min / France-USA

Talking House is a 44-minute montage of Villa E-1027, the iconic modernist villa built by Eileen Gray and Jean Badovici on the Cote d’Azur in 1929. Filmed today, and using Eileen Gray’s 1929 photographs of the villa and recently restored Le Corbusier film footage, the camera takes us through E-1027 as the couple talks and argues off screen about the design philosophy behind the breakthrough layout, interiors and furniture. Heated correspondence between Corbu (Le Corbusier) and Bado (Badovici) adds a bit of controversy over the later addition of Corbu’s wall paintings.
Following the screening Juliet Kinchin, Curator of Modern Design at MoMA will moderate a discussion with Elle Decor's Joseph Giovannini and Artist/Director Elizabeth Lennard.

Friday Sept 30 @ 6:45 with Q&A  Tickets

2016 / 70 min / USA / Sneak Preview  
Director Tom Jennings' new film follows the international competition to rebuild the site of The World Trade Center after 9/11. Focused on the unrealized design proposal from United Architects, the film sheds light on the importance of this public competition, delicately considering the site’s history, symbolism and future. United Architects was a collaboration between Greg Lynn of Greg Lynn FORM, Kevin Kennon of Kevin Kennon Architects,  Ben van Berkel of UNStudio, Peter Frankfurt of Imaginary Forces, Jesse Reiser & Nanako Umemoto of Reiser+Umemoto Architects, and Alejandro Zaera-Polo & Farshid Moussavi of Foreign Office Architects. 

Following this sneak preview will be a panel discussion moderated by Architect/Author Michael Sorkin and featuring Director Tom Jennings, Architect Kevin Kennon and other architects from the United Architects team.

Saturday Oct 1 @ 4:00  Tickets

Where Architects Live 
Directed by Francesca Molteni 
2014 / 78 min / Italy / US Premiere 
Where Architects Live gives an intriguing insight into the daily lives of some of the world’s leading designers: Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, David Chipperfield, Massimiliano And Doriana Fuksas, Zaha Hadid, Marcio Kogan, Daniel Libeskind and Bijoy Jain. 
The film intimately reveals the homes of these eight architects, broadening visions of domestic architecture and interior design, and suggesting that this discipline is most suited to evolution and experimentation.
Following this US premiere Wendy Goodman, Design Editor of New York Magazine will lead a discussion about designers designing for themselves and what they learn from that experience. On the panel will be Director Francesca Molteni, Designer Amy Lau and Master Dutch Gardener Piet Oudolf.
