The Alden B. Dow Home and Studio will present Movie Sundays as live Zoom events. Live narration along with an intermission and plenty of time for questions and answers will add to the fun of seeing Mr. Dow’s Mid-Century Architecture and Design films. Once you register, your confirmation email will include the Zoom Meeting ID and Passcode. You are welcome to log in up to 15 minutes early to ensure settings are working correctly. The presentation will start promptly at 1pm.
This series highlights Alden B. Dow’s favorite subjects: architecture, nature and people. The first two films feature the detailed construction of Mr. Dow’s experimental hyperbolic paraboloid, known as the Bay Gas Station, and the Carras Residence developed as the Dow Test House. Next we will travel to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. In this 1945 film, Alden B. Dow captures the natural beauty of the desert and sequences of Frank Lloyd Wright and his family. This series wraps up with a nature film with Alden B. Dow taking us from the blowing snow of winter, to the crocuses and apple blossoms of spring, to a summer storm blowing in over Higgins Lake, Michigan
