Build Poster Redux

We’re celebrating the development of our new film DenseCity by releasing this understated stunner in Pantone green. Spanning the coast from Vancouver to Los Angeles, this slice of design heaven will jump off any wall. Printed masterfully on 100lb Topkote paper stock.

Bay Area Premiere Oct 14

Well it took us long enough but we are finally screening in the Bay Area, at the superb Rialto Theatre in El Cerrito to be exact. Berkeley architecture legends Henrik Bull (featured in the film) and Jack Robbins will be in the house for the Q&A afterwards.

Author Dave Weinstein will provide a brief talk on Bay Area modern architecture before the film. A question and answer period with Dave Weinstein, architect Henrik Bull, Jack Robbins and others will follow the film. Should be a great night of architecture!

The film is sponsored by The City of El Cerrito Arts and Culture Commission and El Cerrito Modern.

Tickets available online here.

Modernism Week Feb 22

Team CoMo will be attending our Palm Springs premiere at the 2013 Modernism Week in Palm Springs. This should prove to be a healthy dose of sunshine and gin, just what the doctor ordered. We’ll be tweeting and blogging throughout our time there and look forward to attending the parties and events. Hoping we get invited to John Lautner’s Elrod House, that would be nice! Show info here.

Coast Modern DJ Set at The Ace Hotel.

Some photos from our first CoMo visit to Palm Springs.
First up is Richard Neutra’s Miller House designed in 1937 for a yoga instructor. Followed by a Albert Frey’s house. The yellow curtains were intended to connect to a desert flower that blooms every Spring.

Encinitas, CA Feb 21

Mike and Leah will be attending the Encintas screening at the incredible old La Paloma theatre just south of San Diego. We’re getting good press in San Diego so we’re hoping for a good turnout! Check this space and Twitter for updates later this week. Tickets available here. Nice way to get in the mood for Modernism Week in Palm Springs Friday. Cheers!
