Join Design Council and Design Onscreen for the Denver premiere of The Nature of Modernism, E. Stewart Williams, Architect (2014, USA, 79 min.).
When Frank Sinatra walked into E. Stewart Williams’ newly established architectural office in May of 1947 he wanted a Georgian-style house built in the desert of Palm Springs. Williams tactfully convinced him of the benefits of modernism and Sinatra went for it. The two had no idea how far reaching and influential that decision would prove to be. This film makes extensive use of E. Stewart Williams’ personal archive of photographs and voice recordings to shed light on a remarkable career.
A discussion with Sidney Williams, curator of architecture and design at the Palm Springs Art Museum, will follow the film.
Event is included with general admission. Doors open at 5:30 pm; seating is on a first-come basis.
