The Making of An Avant-Garde: The Institute for Architecture And Urban Studies 1967–1984

The Making of an Avant-Garde

Co-presented with The MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House

The Institute of Architecture and Urban Studies (IAUS) began as a core group of young architects including Diana Agrest, Peter Eisenman, Frank Gehry, Philip Johnson, Rem Koolhaas, Richard Meier, and Anthony Vidler, seeking alternatives to traditional forms of education and practice. IAUS has since redefined architectural discourse and practice in the United States and abroad. (2013, Dir. Diana Agrest, 64 min.) 

A Q&A with director Diana Agrest, Craig Hodgetts, and Kimberli Meyer follows the screening.
