Coast Modern: Modern Architecture of the Pacific States 

When: Thu., Oct. 11, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $9

If you've driven the Pacific Coast Highway and were able to tear your eyes away from the dramatic shoreline to look landward, you've seen them. Boxy, wooden-sided houses, weathered gray. Low, flat-roofed homes that accept their levels from the hills beneath. This is Pacific Coast Modern architecture—kind of what Frank Lloyd Wright might have sketched after smoking grass around a fire pit. Triangle Modernist Houses opens its fourth season of films on architecture with Coast Modern: Modern Architecture of the Pacific States, a new film about the relaxed design style that takes its cues from the natural environment. Indoor spaces evoke plazas. Outdoor spaces become rooms. "West coast Modernism is a bit more approachable," architect Cathy Johnson says. "It's not afraid to have some sand tracked in from the beach." Coast Modern is the first of five TMH films through February at the Galaxy. The series will move elsewhere in 2013. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.; tickets are $9, or $29 for all five films in the series. —Chris Vitiello
