Over the course of his sixty-year career, Architect William Krisel has brought modernism to the masses, designing more than 40,000 individual housing units across the U.S. Krisel’s influential work has become synonymous with mid-20th century Southern Californian design. The documentary explores his life and work, including his roots in 1930s China, his ground-breaking designs for modern living, and interviews with scholars, his contemporaries and family. “I’m a firm believer that good modern design can make your life happier, more productive and more enjoyable,” says Krisel. William Krisel, Architect is presented by Design Onscreen, a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to producing, preserving and promoting high-quality films on architecture and design.
