Jake Gorst Discussion of New England Modernism Feb. 15

The New Canaan Historical Society is presenting an interesting program on mid-century modern architecture on February 15 @ 7 pm. Lovers of architecture are invited to join director/producer Jake Gorst as he recounts twenty years of documenting U.S. mid-century modern architecture and design. His most recent project, “New England Modernism: Revolutionary Architecture in the 20th century,” is currently in production for release in theaters and through Amazon Prime.

Jake has produced many films for Design OnScreen, including the documentary series Frey (2018-20) as well as The Nature of Modernism: E. Stewart Williams, Architect (2014); Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island (2012); William Krisel, Architect (2010); Journeyman Architect: The Life and Work of Donald Wexler (2009); and Desert Utopia: Midcentury Architecture in Palm Springs (2006). His films Farmboy (2006) and Leisurama (2005), have been in national US public television distribution.

Jake is the author of the book Andrew Geller: Deconstructed (2015, Glitterati Inc.), an Emmy award-winning producer, and the director of Mainspring Narrative Films. He is also a contributing writer to The Architect’s Newspaper, VOX Hamptons, HOME Miami, Modern, and Modernism magazines.
