ALBERT FREY: THE ARCHITECTURAL ENVOY (PART I)
Design Council of the Denver Art Museum is pleased to present Design Onscreenâ€™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 Freyâ€™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.
