City Dreamers is a film about our changing urban environment and four trailblazing women architects who have been working, observing and thinking about the transformations shaping the cities of today and tomorrow for over 70 years.
Phyllis Lambert, Blanche Lemco van Ginkel, Cornelia Hahn Oberlander and Denise Scott Brown may not be household names, but architecture and urban planning aficionados likely know that these women have worked with some of the greatest architects of our time, including the likes of Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Louis Kahn and Robert Venturi. In the course of their inspiring careers, they have left an indelible mark on several cities across North America and Europe.
City Dreamers is above all inspired by what has united these four women throughout their careers: the “dream” of a fundamentally human and inclusive city.
Presented in conjunction with Cornelia Hahn Oberlander: Genius Loci a new exhibition open from January 20 to March 13, 2021 at the West Vancouver Art Museum.
