DADo Film Society presents Unsung Heroes (short series), screening at the Robin Boyd Walsh Street Courtyard on 23 July 2014.
The three short films will be indroduced by Justine Clark of Parlour. Archiculture takes a thoughtful, yet critical look at the architectural studio offering a unique glimpse into the world of studio-based, design education through the eyes of a group of students finishing their final design projects. Interviews with leading professionals, historians and educators help create crucial dialogue around the key issues faced by this unique teaching methodology and the built environment these future architects will create.
(Archiculture, 2013, 25.34mins, Directed by David Krantz and Ian Harris)

“A Girl is a Fellow Here”: 100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright a sample of tales from some of the over 100 women architects, designers and artisans who worked with American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Through their work and their own words, the film reveals what they gleaned from Wright and where they departed from his model. Under Wright’s guidance they learned their craft and honed their ideas, split wood and laid shingles, dreamed, drew and designed. After they left Wright’s studio, they created thousands of projects across the country. Their practice provides a legacy for all women working in architecture today. Featured architects include Marion Mahony, Isabel Roberts, Jane Duncombe, Lois Davidson Gottlieb, Eleanore Pettersen, and Read Weber. The film is presented courtesy of The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation (BWAF).
