The Centerbrook Architects Lectures Series: Filmmaker/Producer Jake Gorst Presents The Work Of Architect Andrew Geller
April 4, 2013
Friday April 12th at 7 p.m. at the Essex Town Hall
Filmmaker Jake Gorst, who also happens to be Geller’s grandson will speak about Geller (1924-2011), who designed hundreds of innovative and influential modern structures during an important era of 20th century creativity and expressionism. Geller’s association with industrial designer Raymond Loewy led to significant contributions to historic structures such as New York’s famed Lever House and The World Trade Center. His freelance vacation home architecture reflected a lighthearted playfulness and a mastery of the balance between fantasy and everyday reality. The Wall Street Journal architecture editorialist Alastair Gordon described Geller as the “architect of happiness”.
