Fundamental Truths: The Architecture of Irving J. Gill VHS
Just before the dawn of the 20th century, a young architect named Irving J. Gill came to San Diego, California. A firm believer in the edict that form follows function, Gill forged a modern vision of architecture, which restored simplicity, revered craftsmanship and drew inspiration from nature. Eschewing ornamentation in favor of simple structures, the stark beauty of his buildings reflects both Quaker sensibilities and the Southern California lifestyle. Backed by progressive San Diegans such as George Marston and Ellen Browning Scripps, Gill helped shape Southern California's unique identity while moving American architecture out of the past. Using archival footage and interviews with historians and architects, Fundamental Truths: The Architecture of Irving J. Gill tells the story of the architect's life and work. It chronicles his quest for structural purity and showcases his masterpieces in and around San Diego.
