Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island

Part of the Art, Design & Architecture series
Co-Presented by Whiting Design

“After WWII, the East End of Long Island played host to a variety of architectural styles. From modernism, through post-modernism, and deconstructionism, architects experimented with social ideas and aesthetic expressions which culminated in “small” houses scattered about the Island’s natural backdrop. Now, with the advent of the mega-mansion and the desire for “bigger”, it is becoming increasingly difficult to preserve such iconic and progressive architectural projects.

“With his documentary Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island, director Jake Gorst seeks to highlight some of the region’s best work as a way to bring awareness and appreciation for such architectural achievement. Interviews are conducted with architects, historians, and clients, and archival material plus current-day  cinematography highlight Long Island’s often underappreciated modernist architectural treasures.

“The work of architects such as Albert Frey, Wallace Harrison, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marcel Breuer, Barbara and Julian Neski, among others, are included in the film.” - Huffington Post
