ON THE EDGE OF TOMORROW is the third episode, but the first to be produced, of a projected 4-part series entitled STONE TO STEEL that documents the development of modern architecture in America from its sources in the late-nineteenth century to its maturity in the mid-twentieth century - at the doorstep to our age.
The episodes include:
American architecture emerged with its first distinctive character in the period of rapid industrialization and disruptive social change that followed the Civil War.
The tall building was an unprecedented technological achievement that fundamentally changed our concept of what a building is, how we work, and the shape of our built environment.
Three California architects, their unconventional clients, and an experimental building program radically transformed the modern house in the first half of the last century.
