10 Buildings That Changed America is a new documentary and multiplatform initiative exploring ten influential American buildings that changed the way we live, work, and play. The documentary will premiere on PBS SoCaL Sunday, May 12th, at 10PM. It will also encore on Tuesday, May 14th at 12AM and 9AM on PBS OC.
PBS SoCaL is involved with the 10 Buildings That Changed America initiative on-air, online, and on the ground engaging the community. On Thursday, May 2nd, PBS SoCaL hosted a sneak peak of 10 Buildings That Changed America at the Richard J. Riordan Central Library. We were fortunate enough to be joined by Frank Gehry, renowned architect featured in the documentary and mastermind behind the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles; Dana Hutt, Architectural Historian; and Michael Webb, Architectural Writer; for a lively panel discussion following the screening. In addition, Dan Protess, Producer and Writer for 10 Buildings That Changed America, introduced the documentary, and Geoffrey Baer, Host and Supervising Producer of the documentary, moderated the panel discussion.
