Building & Brews: Architecture in Hollywood:

,
201 Lipscomb Street, Fort Worth, TX 76104
or Virtual
Our favorite TV shows and classic movies often featured American houses we still remember. In the long running TV series "Leave it to Beaver" the clean-cut Cleaver family lived in a Colonial Revival, suburban house with a white picket fence. In the sinister Alfred Hitchcock movie "North by Northwest," the house was modern, inspired, according to Hitchcock, by Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water, perched atop a mountain like a black crow with cantilever wings. What do American house styles say about our culture? What are their character defining details? How do television shows and movies influence our thinking about architecture? Join us for our next "Building & Brews" to discuss T.V. and classic movie houses, what they teach us. You can register here.

or Virtual
Join Hull Works' founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on the Modern and Art Deco Movement (1900-1950). Studying this period requires looking at a broad era of design and building. Starting with Louis Sullivan in 1900, we will look at how design evolved and the influence of architects such as Mies Van der Rohe, Frank Lloyd Wright and more. We will explore Art Deco architecture, an international style, and its influence on building. During this time, commercial construction really began to take shape and the modern city emerged. Join us to learn about this prolific period in design and construction history that set the world up for production building. You can register here.
