Summer Film Series | Kevin Roche – The Quiet Architect

10-September from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Tickets available at Tropic Cinema Box Office or online via https://www.tropiccinema.com/event/kwahs-presents-kevin-roche-quiet-architect/

“Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect” is a feature documentary tracing the key architectural questions running through the 70-year career of Pritzker Prize-winning Irish-American architect Kevin Roche — including the relationship between architects and the public they serve.

Still working at age 94, Kevin Roche is an enigma: a man with no interest in fame who refuses retirement and continually looks to the future regardless of age. Roche’s architectural philosophy is that “the responsibility of the modern architect is to create a community for a modern society,” and he has emphasized the importance of bringing nature into the buildings people inhabit. The film considers how this philosophy has been applied in such iconic buildings as the Ford Foundation, Oakland Museum and at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art — for whom Kevin Roche was the principal architect for over 40 years.
