ALBERT FREY: THE ARCHITECTURAL ENVOY (PART I)

Film Screening

Design Council of the Denver Art Museum is pleased to present Design Onscreen’s new film, Albert Frey: The Architectural Envoy (Part I).

Albert Frey, the unpretentious Swiss-born mid-twentieth century architect, developed an extraordinary design style, blending industrial techniques and a love of nature.

Just released, the film (the first in a two-part series) explores Frey’s early life and work in Europe to his New York architectural endeavors in the 1930s, including the famed Aluminaire House, the Canvas Weekend House, and in Palm Springs, the Kocher-Samson Building.

The 63-minute film outlines Frey's collaborative efforts with architects, including A. Lawrence Kocher and Le Corbusier, among others, and contains never-before published archival imagery, as well as breathtaking architectural footage. 

Doors open at 5:45 pm. Free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is suggested.

Reserve tickets online or by calling 720-913-0130. 

Sponsored by: Design Council of the Denver Art Museum with Design Onscreen–The Initiative for Architecture and Design on Film, a non-profit foundation dedicated to producing, promoting and preserving high-quality films on architecture and design.
