Citizen Architect

The inspirational design-build outreach program of Samuel Mockbee, artist, architect, educator and founder of the Rural Studio, is chronicled as a group of students are lead through the process of crafting a home for a charismatic client. The creative approach to architecture and social responsibility inspires them to consider how they can use their skills to better their communities. The perspective from other architects and designers infuses the film with a larger discussion of architecture’s role in issues of poverty, class, race, education, social change and citizenship.
