Program 1

Modern Architecture Film

Lone Star Mod: Midcentury Houston Architecture is a documentary film that will showcase Houston’s modernist architecture, profile several premier Houston modernist architects, and explore the effects ofHouston’s controversial lack of zoning on the preservation of selected midcentury landmarks. As a post-WorldWar II boomtown Houston has an abundance of beautiful modernist architecture, yet the city is not celebratedoutside the region for its stunning homes, sleek office buildings, churches, schools, banks, museums, hotels, and the Astrodome. Over the years, countless homes have been honored with Architectural Record magazine’s Record Houses distinction, and many national and regional American Institute of Architects awards have been bestowed on local buildings. The city has hosted a number of talented, inventive architects whose work is critically acclaimed albeit not well known by the general public. This film intends to remind audiences of Houston’s great modernist tradition.Filmmaker Sam Wainwright Douglas is a native Houstonian who grew up in the city’s architecture culture. Having a father who is an architect, Sam gained an early appreciation for Houston modernism that stays with him to this day. Sam’s previous films include Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio (referred to as “Citizen Architect”). Houston Mod will serve as Executive Producer of this film with Design Onscreen, a 501(c)3 a non-profit foundation whose mission is to produce, promote, and preserve high-quality films on architecture and design (www.DesignOnscreen.org).
