Mr Reynold’s Urban Design Film Night

City Dreamers

9 Jan 2020 - 6:15pm - 8:30pm 

A title to inspire, educate and delight, chosen by the UDG’s own film impresario and Honorary Secretary Paul Reynolds

Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander, Denise Scott Brown – four trailblazers who became accustomed to being the only woman in the room. Each has an extensive list of accomplishments in architecture, planning and landscape architecture dating back 60+ years and has taught, mentored and inspired generations of professionals. How have they envisioned our cities?

 

Through original interviews, archival material and stunning cinematography, documentary filmmaker Joseph Hillel uncovers how each of these strong, independent thinkers has shaped the cities we live and work in. As the world becomes increasingly urbanized, the insights of these forward-looking women who have built social and environmental values into their work seem more relevant now than ever.
