Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect

Kevin Roche: The Quiet Architect

Director:
Year: 2017

Still working at age 95, Pritzker Prize winning Irish-American architect Kevin Roche is an enigma. He’s reached the top of his profession, but has little interest in celebrity and eschews the label “Starchitect”. Despite a lifetime of acclaimed work that includes the United Nations Plaza in Manhattan, the Ford Foundation, Oakland Museum of California, and 40 years of designing new galleries for The Metropolitan Museum in New York, he has no intention of ever retiring and keeps looking forward. Roche's architectural philosophy focuses on creating “a community for a modern society” and he has been credited with creating green buildings before they became part of the public consciousness. The film transcends the world of architecture to present a life-philosophy we can all aspire to.
