About the Movie
Travelling along the Pacific North West coastline from LA to Vancouver, the film showcases the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture, and the homes that have become their legacies. This relaxed journey takes us across three generations of Modernist architecture, all finding beauty in their own times, and all taking us back to the basics of true living. A sense of place, light and a deep connection to the earth. Interviewed in Coast Modern are some of the most respected names in architecture, including James Steele, Ray Kappe, Hernik Bull, Pierluigi Serraino, John Cava, Barbara Bestor and Dion Neutra, son of the legendary Richard Neutra.
For those who have watched Visual Acoustics among other documentaries on architecture you will find this to be informative, beautifully art directed and inspiring. There isn't a lot of new information or insights presented and covers many of the same modern architecture territory as those films that have come before it but it is presented in a easy to follow and visually rich story.
A wonderful film
I just love this beautiful and poetic film. Thanks to the filmmakers for all their hard work and dedication in putting this together. It is full of insight. Very enjoyable and inspirational.
A beautiful look
At the way people on the west coast wish we could all live.
