Explore Long Island Architecture on Film

Members of the NYIT community are invited to attend the New York premiere of Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island, on Thursday, June 7, 6-9 p.m. at the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place, New York City.

The documentary film explores work by the region's best post-war architects and designers and features rare archival material and striking cinematography to highlight Long Island's underrated Modernist architectural treasures. It is a project of Design Onscreen - The Initiative for Architecture and Design on Film, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to producing, promoting, and preserving quality films on architecture and design. Among the architects and historians who provide commentary in the film are NYIT architecture professors Frederick Bentel and Frances Campani.

A panel discussion and reception will follow the screening. Panelists include:

  • Frederick Bentel, NYIT professor of architecture and principal of Bentel & Bentel
  • Jake Gorst, director of the film
  • Alastair Gordon, architectural historian and author of Weekend Utopia: Modern Living in the Hamptons
  • Gwendolyn Wright, professor of architecture at Columbia University
  • Christopher Rawlins, principal of Rawlins Design and author of the forthcoming book, Sketches in the Sand: The Beach Houses of Horace Gifford.
