Coast Modern

If you've taken a look at my Tumblr, you know I'm interested in modern architecture. Perhaps it's the utilization of natural light - wide glass walls and open air spaces - incorporating a structure into its surroundings. Or perhaps it's the use of raw materials. Wood, stone and even cement. A lot of the architecture I like is asymmetrical, and yet there's a certain symmetry - rooms seamlessly connected to one another. I like other styles of architecture, but for whatever reason, the west coast modern movement really appeals to my aesthetic. So when I saw this trailer for Coast Modern, a new documentary that showcases modernist architecture from Los Angeles to Vancouver, highlighting homes that exemplify the style I am so fond of, I immediately added it to my iTunes account.
