Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island from Design Onscreen.

This Documentary by director Jake Gorst explores the work of Long Island’s best postwar architects and designers, including Albert Frey, Wallace Harrison, Herbert Beckhard, Frank Lloyd Wright, Horace Gifford, Edward Durrell Stone, Marcel Breuer, Andrew Geller, Philip Johnson, Charles Gwathmey, Barbara and Julian Neski, among others. The film features interviews with architects and historians, as well as friends, families and clients of these influential designers. Gorst uses both rare archival material and current-day high-definition cinematography to highlight Long Island’s often underappreciated modernist architectural treasures. “Long Island has a rich heritage of midcentury modern architecture,” says Gorst. “Sadly, much of it has disappeared because of redevelopment and natural disaster. We believe the film will foster renewed awareness and appreciation for Long Island’s remaining modernist structures and its unique architectural history.”
