William Krisel, Architect
SAH/SCC Film & Talk
Saturday, September 17, 2011
Join SAH/SCC for a special screening of the acclaimed documentary "William Krisel, Architect," with guest appearance by the subject himself at the Santa Monica Public Library (Moore Ruble Yudell, 2006). Following the screening, architect William Krisel, AIA, will be on hand to discuss his career and to field questions from the audience.
Throughout his 60-year career, Krisel is best known for his residential developments in Palm Springs with the Alexander Construction Company. Bringing modernism to the masses, he has designed more than 40,000 individual housing units across the U.S. The documentary-directed by Jake Gorst and produced by Design Onscreen, a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to producing, preserving, and promoting high-quality films on architecture and design-explores his life and work. "I'm a firm believer that good modern design can make your life happier, more productive, and more enjoyable," says Krisel, a great champion for the architect's significance in society.
The talented and charismatic Krisel is also responsible for many significant modern non-residential buildings throughout Southern California. Come learn about them from the architect-in his own words. This event is free. Seating will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis.
