The Design & Architecture Films Showcase gathers a dozen recent documentaries about design, architecture, and urban planning. These are films that consider the enormous challenges of practical aesthetics, from rebuilding Ground Zero in Lower Manhattan, to exhuming subterranean rivers in cities around the globe, to finally finishing the Gothic epitome that is Antoni Gaudí's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona (under construction since 1882). They're also necessarily films about people, those close inspectors of urban spaces, rural spaces, head spaces, who would presume to extract order — and beauty — from the chaos of contemporary life. Other highlights of YBCA's monthlong series include a portrait of Pablo Ferro, the bohemian Cuban emigre who made the opening titles of movies such as Dr. Strangelove and our own locally beloved Bullitt; and a double feature of films focusing on individual, beautifully landscape-integrated buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright and Richard Neutra, respectively. Overall, these are films that seem to understand what Wright meant when he said, "A building is not just a place to be but a way to be."
