FREE Architecture Documentary Coming to Aspen!

Please join AIA Colorado, in conjunction with ASLA (American Society of Landscape Architects), and USGBC (United States Green Building Council) in celebrating Colorado Architecture and Landscape Architecture Month!

There will be a free film screening of a new architectural documentary titled “Coast Modern” at the Wheeler Opera House on Friday, April 3rd. Details below. Local members of AIA, ASLA, USGBC and APA (American Planning Association) will present the film and answer any questions. We look forward to seeing you there!


Coast Modern is an independent documentary by directors Mike Bernard and Gavin Froome. Traveling 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. Stepping inside the most inspired dwellings on the west coast, we feel how the light and space of classic Modernist home can work in collaboration with the natural environment.

Interviewed in Coast Modern are some of the most respected names in architecture, including James Steele, Barbara Lamprecht, Ray Kappe, Hernik Bull, Pierluigi Serraino, Michael Folonis, Dion Neutra, Douglas Coupland, John Cava, Barbara Bestor and legendary photographer Julius Shulman.

Google Submits Incredibly Innovative Plans for New Campus

Blurring the line between buildings and nature, Google is set to change the world of architecture with their newly designed campus. Imagine being a City Council member in Mountain View, California and being charged with reviewing the plans.

Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and Thomas Heatherwick, large translucent canopies will cover the sites. Inside Google will use movable walls to construct the buildings; allowing buildings to change shape as they develop new and innovative products. Inside the canopies, the sites will be beautifully landscaped with pathways, trees, gardens, bridges and cafes.

“Instead of constructing immoveable concrete buildings, we’ll create lightweight block-like structures which can be moved around easily as we invest in new product areas,” David Radcliffe, Google’s vice president of real estate, said in a blog post Friday. “Large translucent canopies will cover each site, controlling the climate inside yet letting in light and air.”

For a first-hand look, check out their video here – its beyond fascinating!
