Travelling along the Pacific Northwest coastline from LA to Vancouver, this stunning documentary showcases the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture, and the homes that have become their legacies. The film, by Vancouver filmmakers Gavin Froome and Mike Bernard, traces the Modernist movement from its incarnations in 1922 through to the current day, showing what makes this architectural form so distinct. Coast Modern takes us back to the basics of true living - a sense of place, light, and a deep connection to the earth.
