Citizen Architect: Samuel Mockbee and the Spirit of the Rural Studio
This documentary spotlights Samuel Mockbee, whose Rural Studio program encourages a new generation of architects to practice their trade in a socially positive way, by having students design and build homes for poor residents of Hale County, Ala. The crew building a house for spirited R&B fan Jimmy Lee Matthews is soon beguiled by their charity case. Interviews with architectural experts present endorsements and criticisms of Mockbee's approach.
