I've been anxiously awaiting the premiere of Citizen Architect; Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio. Tune in to your local PBS station on Monday August 23rd and 9pm CT for the premiere.
My architect brother, Clay, told me about this movie months ago and always keeps me posted on the most interesting and important happenings in the architecture and design world. . . Clay is an Ivy League educated Architect and Professor and quite talented. Freaky talented, in fact. You can read an article he wrote about his philosophy and teaching style on GOOD It's one of our dreams to have a home designed by Clay. . . oh, one of these days! Something meaningful - not fancy. Useful and beautiful. Available and affordable. Like the philosophy of Rural Studio. One of these days. . . and when Clay and his wife (my dear friend and sister-in-law) Amy have some time - they just welcomed the newest addition to our family - sweet baby Gaines - and of course my 2 1/2 yr old niece and muse, Miss Lola - and they are suuuuuper swamped as you can imagine! In the meantime, check out Citizen Architect and be inspired to do what you do and do it with meaning.
