Heinz Emigholz: Architecture as Autobiography


The film shows 62 buildings—from small petrol stations to representative museums—designed by the American architect Bruce Goff. Many of his buildings stood like shock in the landscape, paving the way for new, yet unimaginable avenues in architecture.

Our take

As part of “Architecture as Autobiography,” we go on an American road trip with director Heinz Emigholz to find unexpectedly shaped, beautifully lit buildings—many of which are individual houses—designed by Bruce Goff. A constantly surprising series of discoveries embedded in the landscape.
