Unsung Heroes (short series)

Archiculture, 2013, 25.34mins, Dir. David Krantz and Ian Harris

“Archiculture” takes a thoughtful, yet critical look at the architectural studio. The film offers a unique glimpse into the world of studio-based, design education through the eyes of a group of students finishing their final design projects. Interviews with leading professionalshistorians and educators help create crucial dialogue around the key issues faced by this unique teaching methodology and the built environment these future architects will create.

“A Girl is a Fellow Here”: 100 Women Architects in the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright, 2012, 19mins, produced by The Beverly Willis Architecture Foundation, written and directed by Beverly Willis, FAIA

Over 100 women architects, designers and artisans worked with Frank Lloyd Wright, often described as America’s greatest architect. Many of them went on to have remarkable careers of their own. Through their work and their own words, the film reveals what they gleaned from Wright and where they departed from his model. Under Wright’s guidance, from Oak Park in Wisconsin to Taliesin in Arizona, they learned their craft and honed their ideas, split wood and laid shingles, dreamed, drew and designed. After they left Wright’s studio, they created thousands of projects across the country. Although Frank Lloyd Wright’s virtually unknown legacy, their practice provides a legacy for all women working in architecture today. Film features architects Marion Mahony, Isabel Roberts, Jane Duncombe, Lois Davidson Gottlieb, Eleanore Pettersen, and Read Weber. (source:
