Citizen Architect

“Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio” is a film that gets into what the value of good architecture might be, both for the architect and for the person who lives in the building. The film, which is coming to PBS, is about Samuel Mockbee and his vision of an architecture for everyone. Cameron Sinclair of Architecture for Humanity has a few words in the clip in favor of design for everyone, and Peter Eisenman of Yale says the role of architecture is not to save the world but instead to challenge us.
