Our Pace Setters is the second of two films about architecture, building, home and family presented by HOUSE du RIVAGE.
Our Pace Setters is a short subject documentary about how architecture inspires and how it endures from generation to generation.
From the filmmaker’s unique perspective growing up in a home by Florida architect Alfred Browning Parker, the film looks back with affection as it introduces the filmmaker’s parents, Art and Jane du Rivage, and their 1962 Parker designed home. Representing a new generation, the film looks forward with enthusiasm and follows the creation — from design through construction — of a new home for the filmmaker, Holly du Rivage, designed by Los Angeles architect Vaughan Trammell.
Our Pace Setters is currently in development.
