What Is West Coast Modernism?

What is West Coast Modern? Architect Cathy Johnson describes West Coast Modernism as “a bit more approachable, it’s not afraid to have some sand tracked in from the beach.” The independent film “Coast Modern“, by Mike Bernard and Gavin Froome, takes a look at “West Coast Modern” homes sprinkled along the Pacific North West coastline from Los Angeles all the way north to Vancouver. These homes prove that architecture can become one with the environment.

According to the filmmakers, “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 ā€“ a sense of place, light, and a deep connection to the earth.”

Coast Modern will be shown at the Architecture & Design Film Festival in New York on October 19th and 20th at 9:30pm. To learn more about this film visit Coastmodernfilm.com.
